Yes, it should be good enough for bootloaders.

Emulating attributes would be great so you can actually navigate
bootloader menus.

And we don't have a cursor I've noticed meanwhile.  That would be very
helpful for editing your linux cmd line in the boot loader.  A blinking
cursor is probably a bit unrealistic (need timer interrupt etc), but
emulating a block cursor should be possible I think.
