Sure, if you are happy with the submodule approach that's great.

On the QEMU side the device name should have an "x-" prefix so it's
clear that the feature is experimental and subject to change. This way
there is no stability guarantee during development. Both the protocol
and command-line can be changed without introducing feature bits and
keeping backwards compatibility.
