That's definitely the key question.

I would have quirked AHCI/piix hardware into AHCI mode long ago, if
firmwares defaulting to piix mode would actually program the PCI BAR

Or, if the firmware had some way to safely allocate a bus memory range,
which we could ourselves program into the PCI BAR. Some non-PC
platforms can do that.
