That sounds really interesting! Sadly there isn't much x86 development
happening on OpenBIOS at the moment since the current focus for x86 is
on the UEFI BIOSs, however I generally try and make sure that it builds.
I was able to boot coreboot/OpenBIOS in QEMU as per the instructions at
https://www.coreboot.org/QEMU#coreboot_v3_.2B_OpenBIOS, although that
was a few years ago and it's not something I regularly do.
However I would expect that the basic functionality of booting into
OpenBIOS with serial console/VGA driver and running an ELF executable in
real mode to be working fine - if it's not then please let us know :)
