Javier already has provide the best path forward for now and that is for
Anaconda to provide an sd-boot option in same/similar manner as extlinux
exist today so people will have the option to chose to use sd-boot instead
Those who want a simple modern bootloader will then have the ability to use
it while those need or prefer a boot manager OS and all it bells and
whistles it brings along with it can continue to use that.
After what one or two releases of Fedora the idea of making sd-boot the
default for EFI installs can be visited and or WG decide that for
GRUB2 is not a "boot manager OS", it's a fairly simple, but modular, single
threaded boot management application.
GRUB2 supports UEFI well, probably better than systemd-bloat. At the same
time, it's much more flexible in other aspects, providing users with the
ability to boot their system in a number of situations that systemd-bloat
doesn't support, as well as providing a recovery console in the event that
there are issues loading the kernel and initramfs. GRUB2 also supports Secure
Boot. Does systemd-bloat?
