However writting a different bootloader or extending it for non-uefi
systems is kinda pointless, in that case you have to continue using grub2.

Isn't it amazing how quickly older non-UEFI systems are forgotten about?
Is linux getting to be like MS and telling everyone that in order to
keep using linux you have to go out and buy new hardware!

It's also alarming how many people are currently waffling on about
dropping 32-bit support as if it's something from the space age (the
space age being something primarily from the 1960s/70s).

They are not forgotten, you have grub1, grub2, lilo and other less
common bootloaders to work with, they are still maintained.

No, what is pointless and unproductive is to write *completely new*
bootloaders for BIOS on PC systems since what hardware manufacturers are
selling since a few years is UEFI! . But I see no problem in improving
existing ones to suit people's needs.
