That isn't exactly helpful either, for non-tech users.  You could pick
up the description from 'qemu -M ?', which lists northbridge,
southbridge and chipset release year, giving the user some more clues
what this is about.  Other properties such as q35 supporting pci express
could be mentioned too.

Not sure what ahci live migration status is.

On qemu q35 will probably never become the default.  But purely for
backward compatibility reasons.
