Yes, that change was intentional (to simplify the code).

IMHO hotplug should not fail. And if it fails the state of the VM 
is somehow undefined, and it is better to have the change in
the config file so that it work on next boot. 

Else a device simply vanish from the configuration, and this is
very confusing on the GUI!

What can make hotplug fail exactly (beside bugs in KVM)?
