I don't think that trying to support every 10+ year old board is worth 
it, but at least a few from each genre (desktop, server/workstation and 
embedded) should be required to be ported for a style change to occur 
rather than everything simply abandoned as there wasn't anyone willing 
to update it.

AFAIK as of now every non-development AMD board will be dropped in a few 
release cycles, I am not a firmware developer but I can't understand as 
to how a code style change makes that worth it especially considering 
many of those are the last and latest owner controlled x86 devices.

In terms of vendor support (for the very few that do that); the majority 
of coreboot boards are in the expensive server or the embedded category 
so I don't think that it is unreasonable to expect the hypothetical 
vendor that releases code and advertises coreboot support to directly 
support for both initial release equivalent functionality and security 
it for 2x the hw warranty (as that is generally a useful life for most 

The "standard" 3 and now even 1 year update lifecycle that comes with 
hardware is creating a massive internet security issue.
