I think we need to list up what information must be passed by a boot loader on every architecture and each architecture first. I made two new pages on the wiki:
Feel free to edit these pages.
I think some survey is required. It would be worth checking how existing systems deal with each architecture (such as Linux, NetBSD and L4KA).

I am not sure how applicable it is here, but when I read about tags
I immediately thought of IEEE1212 directory format. Anyone think
that can be useful here ?

I haven't heard of IEEE 1212, and of course I can't read it without paying.

The tagged-structure approach is a very good idea here.
