Can I suggest not using SPI as an example here? It's particularly
messy since addresses are essentially just a random signal that can be
totally separate to the controller hardware which might be adding more
complexity early on in building up your model than is really desirable.
It will need to be dealt with but perhaps not right now. I2C might be
easier.

The initial issue with SPI is that you really need to do something like
bring out individual slots on the bus rather than the bus as a whole
since you're going to need a remapping layer to map chip selects on the
module to chip selects on the host board.
