My opinion is that this is a duplication of effort and we'd be better
off if everyone contributed to enhancing virtio, which already has
widely deployed guest drivers and non-Linux guest support.

It may have merit if it is proven that it is technically superior to
virtio (and I don't mean some benchmark in some point in time; I mean
design wise). So far I haven't seen any indications that it is.
