I already wrote about this, and this was in my plans TO DO (investigate) for Y2016: https://www.coreboot.org/pipermail/coreboot/2016-February/080969.html
Good that you again revamped this topic. I am on the same page with you.
Thank you, Zoran

I noticed that seabios/libpayload could have interresting use cases and I want to share/discuss them.
- Have a SeaBIOS be a UEFI application. This would benefit on UEFI
platforms without CSM.
- Provide a minimum UEFI environment. As I noticed u-boot started to have
such support. In fact it has UEFI glue to u-boot drivers. As such it provides a minimal boot services + minimum runtime services. In seabios, it is almost there, only PE loader and filesystem support is missing.
The 2) could be perhaps be some independent project utilizing the coreboot libpayload library.
Maybe those can be done in next year GSoC.
I guess 2) could be useful to boot future OSes without legacy support.
