Yes...Dropping support for BIOS will enable us to switch to systemd-boot, which is the benefit. But just out of curiosity, what is the benefit of switching from GRUB to systemd-boot.
Dropping support for 32-bit x86 surely can make maintainers be free from one old platform (and less package to compile... etc.). But supporting BIOS is just work for GRUB (and anaconda, not system-wide) and when system is booted, BIOS or UEFI won't show such a significant difference, not so great work is put into this.
