Ján raised an interesting point:

[in person, there is no mailing list link]

whatever number we choose,
no matter how wrong doing so is, some user or application
will end up relying on us providing at least that many
hotpluggable ports, so there's no going back.

For that reason, I would recommend leaving just a single
empty hotpluggable port for now, and raise the number in
the future if we find out that one's definitely not enough.

Also, would it be possible to make this feature of leaving
free hot-pluggable slots opt-in?

E.g. a <controller model='pcie-root-port'> without an index
would be considered a port where we should not put devices
with auto-assigned addresses.

(This might actually be more ugly than the proposed solution,
or the 'freeHotplugSlots' attribute, but I dislike implicit
device additions after having model='none' memballoon and usb
