It ensures the two models are compatible. Since they're the same device from the point of view of the guest, there's no reason for them to have different representations or to be incompatible.
live migration between something that has in-kernel irqchip and
something that has not is likely to be a completely untested
thing. And this is the only reason we might think of it as the same
device. I don't see any value in supporting this combination
Not just live migration.  ACPI sleep + savevm + loadvm + ACPI resume,
for example.
Yes, but in this case too, I'd expect the irqchipness of qemu not to change.

If I've just been sent an image produced by someone running KVM, and
my machine is not KVM-capable, or I cannot upgrade the KVM kernel
module because it's in use by other VMs (had this problem a few
times), there's no choice but to change the irqchipness.

You cannot migrate from KVM to TCG so this use-case is irrelevant.
