If you care to do this sort of work, you can certainly recompile the BIOS. The source is there afterall.

Indeed, same goes for all the other QEMU options.  The question is
whether it's useful enough to have an option, or obscure enough not to.

I'm inclined to think modifying ACPI tables is obscure, except
perhaps for specific tweaks that some versions of Windows or Linux
might need to run correctly, or to prevent them from using some
hardware feature or other.

In the future, it may be interesting to allow a precompiled ACPI table to be loaded and specified as part of a machine configuration file. I think it makes a lot more sense if you can actually change the machine layout without recompiling.
