When you say "bus" you actually mean point-point connection, right[1]?
I don't see anything in virtio that allows arbitration of multiple devices, or 
any particular need for one as it can be handled by the host bus bindings.


[1] Technically I suppose a p-t-p connection is a degenerate case of a bus. 
While modern hardware busses (USB, PCIe) are electrically point-point, 
logically they are usually a shared bus topology.
