There is actually a standard-ish way: UEFI.
I've had some luck using EDK2 on my RPi 3 B+, but only with a third
party binary. It could indeed boot generic aarch64 Debian.
My channel has an old experimental and broken description of it, but
the licensing of the modules necessary to build EDK2 for the Pi3
specifically is unclear to me. Certainly some nonfree assets there, but
I'm not sure if they are all absolutely necessary, or if they are
actually binaries or just nonfree source code.


Look in the raingloom/packages/bootloaders.scm
