Is that restriction going to work with migration ?

eg, you have a VM with 3 disks.  vda, vdb, vdc (index=0, index=1 and index=2).
You then hot-unplug the 2nd disk, vdb (index=1).  Now migrate the guest to 
another machine. I believe you now need to be able to start qemu on the target
host with -incoming and index=0 and index=2, but no index=1 because that 
disk was unplugged. So the indexes would be discontinuous now
