We obviously can't say to users "Are you running Windows and are you

Why not? The device can be chosen on a per-VM basis.

Not everyone knows what guest some random user will be running
(consider cloud platforms).

Expecting an admin to introspect the guest is not a good plan.
Having the same set of levers that work at least reasonably with
everything is the way to go.
