Is it just me or does this whole thing on abandoning Multiboot 2 seem like a 
terrible idea? (That's a retorical question since I've already talked to 
several people in the OSDev community about it.) The only reason why people 
still use Multiboot is because it's the best we've got. It's not flexible and 
it's way behind the needs of current OSes.

Instead of several versions of Multiboot 1 popping up for other CPU 
architectures we could just have Multiboot 2. One day people will finally 
realise that no one can cope with Multiboot 1 anymore and by then we'll need to 
support both Multiboot 1 and Multiboot 2 in all kernels/boot loaders even for 
non-x86 architectures.
