For past devices, we know which BARs they use.  For future devices, it
would be nice if the PCH/MCH backdoor was specified so that we know they
will leave a free BAR for virtualization.

Now I'm a bit confused about BAR here.

You're saying we will reserve a free BAR to address those information to
expose to guest, but which device does this free BAR belong to? The
video device? Or PCH/MCH?

The video device. If the host device does not have the BAR (which will be the common case), QEMU can emulate it like this:

- offsets 0x0000..0x0fff map to configuration space of the host MCH

- offsets 0x1000..0x1fff map to configuration space of the host PCH

Of course this is only limited to offsets that are needed by the driver.
