[coreboot] SeaBIOS with native graphics initialization?

Hi all,

I'm currently running Libreboot 20150518 on ThinkPad X200, but I'd like 
to switch to Coreboot (the newest stable version, 4.4). The reason is 
that Libreboot seems to provide only one configuration and its build 
system seems difficult to understand in comparison to Coreboot.

I'd like to use SeaBIOS (as opposed to Libreboot's GRUB) as payload - I 
also would like to have coreinfo, memtest and nvramcui so that it all 
provides kind of BIOS-like menu.

Is that possible using native graphics initialization without vgabios? 
There are some recent references that it's possible.

I'm asking because, although I have flashing equipment (I've flashed my 
X200 myself), the flashing took a lot of time, because of too long 
wires, interferences from PSU etc. I don't want to be forced to flash it 
again, so I want to be absolutely sure before I switch.
