Are we now ready to accept a simple & stupid patch that actually helps users, say letting boards that care declare minimum and maximum RAM size? And make PC reject RAM size less than 1MiB, even though "someone" might conceivably have firmware that works with less?
I'd say enforce a minimum RAM size on the normal "pc" and "q35" machine, but still allow smaller sizes on the "isapc" machine. So if "someone" 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 €.
Or maybe simply warn the user that things may go wrong instead of enforcing it.
