So in your view uboot should remove support for hardware you don't have
and booting methods you don't use and not strive to remove the use of
Not having to deal with wrapped kernels with the efi interface present
in uboot >= 2016.05 and being able to have entry points for basic things
like character io and reading blocks off disks is what made uboot actually
useable for many people that previously had to deal with the largely
unmaintained api interface.
