These are the opposites: SeaBIOS is CSM ON (emulates
while Tiano Core supposed to be CSM OFF (UEFI), Thus, SeaBIOS and
Tiano Core exclude each other (should not be used together -> wrong
I fail to see what you are trying to tell me.
I'm not sure you even know what a CSM is.

The point is to make minimal Tiano Core (minimum for
partition/file system on HDD/SDD to create /boot/EFI/ directory, in
other words minimal UEFI compliant BIOS), Tiano Core as such is good
to be used/run for/on x86 architecture ONLY (and side effect is the
extended time for booting, since all these DXE drivers must be
installed, which will be later mostly replaced/run over with OS
drivers, except run time services).
As such, Minimal Tiano Core (minimal UEFI compliant
BIOS) could be
used on ARM architectures too, thus making ARM HW platforms also
compatible/lookalike as x86 UEFI compliant BIOS.
tianocore already runs on arm.
seabios doesn't and it never will.
In nutshell, then you can build PC/Laptop with ARM
platform, having coreboot + minimal Tiano Core + WIN 10 Boot Loader +
WIN10 on it (since WIN10 BL does see UEFI compliance, not knowing what
is really under the hood). ;-)
And what has all this to do with seabios?
