Yes, you're right indeed!!!  I think you want something like

   -object ipmi-bmc-extern,id=bmc0,chardev=foo
   -device isa-ipmi-kcs,bmc=bmc0


   -object ipmi-bmc,id=bmc0
   -device isa-ipmi-bt,bmc=bmc0

ipmi-bmc would be a subclass of Object like the one that you have, but
it needs to implement the UserCreatable interface; see backends/rng.c
for an example.

Then ipmi-isa-kcs would be your usual ISA device, so a subclass of
TYPE_ISA_DEVICE; however it would implement IPMIInterface, which would
be an interface rather than an abstract class.  For an example of
interface boilerplate, see hw/core/hotplug.c.  For an example of how to
implement the "bmc" property, see hw/mem/pc-dimm.c.
