It's clearly how the hardware works. MSI has a message store of some
sorts and if the entry is enabled then the MSI chip (in PCI or
elsewhere) will send exactly the message which is in that message
store. It knows absolutely nothing about what the message means and how
it is composed. The only things which MSI knows about is whether the
message address is 64bit wide or not and whether the entries are
maskable or not and how many entries it can store.

Software allocates a message target at the underlying irq domain (vector
or remap) and that underlying irq domain defines the properties.

If qemu emulates it differently then it's qemu's problem, but that does
not make it in anyway something which influences the irq domain
abstractions which are correctly modeled after how the hardware works.

Oh yes it is. We define that upfront and not after the fact.
