Yes, this is why I did say "apart from the windows idea".

The virtqueue handling seems very similar between the two.  However, the
messages for rpmsg however have a small header (struct rpmsg_hdr in
include/linux/rpmsg.h) and there is a weird feature bit VIRTIO_RPMSG_F_NS.

So I guess virtio-rpmsg and virtio-peer are about as similar as
virtio-serial and virtio-peer.
