What is likely to be the nature of the "qemu" tool?
I at least have shell scripts that depend on running "qemu" with certain arguments. If the "qemu" tool does some target architecture detection and supports all the arguments the qemu-system-* command does, then that's fine (and then distributions can provide a symlink or a tiny shell script until the tool appears). If not, this seems a little backwards-incompatible, so I'm curious what the benefit is.
(Strictly speaking, I think I only have shell scripts that depend on running "kvm" with certain arguments, but I imagine the situation is similar.)
