I'm currently writing this email on a ThinkPad X200 Tablet, which does not support UEFI. I can get dropping x86 support, but dropping BIOS boot support?
Such proposal would never be about stop supporting older hardware
that's just a misconception people are getting
And it's quite evident by the response here that hw that is
atleast 2010 and older is still quite happily being used and that
hw does not support UEFI and no one is talking about taking that
away anytime soon.
The first step ( The actual change proposal ) would simply be
about replace grub2 with sd-boot for UEFI strictly on the x86
architecture which has UEFI available and enabled ( is not using
legacy bios ) and see what issue are encountered, solve those then
consider moving to different architectures and further integration
if relevant etc. ( baby steps ) Next I would suggest looking at
UEFI supported ARM systems ( but I personally would have to obtain
such hardware before doing so ).
