I'd say enforce a minimum RAM size on the normal "pc" and "q35"
but still allow smaller sizes on the "isapc" machine. So if
comes around and claims to have a legacy firmware that wants less memory
than 1MiB, just point them to the isapc machine.
Just my 0.02 €.
We can print warning that minimum size will be enforced in 1-2
releases since 2.9/10 and when it's enforced send users that need
less to an old qemu version.
