Rather than having each NIC create it's own client, let's create the

'-device $nic,net-client=$name' doesn't work ...

One advantage is that we can add parameters which only the client
knows about, without having the NIC know anything about it - e.g. NICs
shouldn't know about netdev vs. vlan.

What this is needed for?

Another advantage is that we can easily get the client associated with
a qdev.

Looks like this is the *real* reason ...
