I'd rather have a simple bootloader and device tree than an ACPI or EFI BIOS in my PC. Perhaps the BIOS could be chain loaded for OSes that need it.
Where would your device tree come from? I presume you could install a new graphics controller in your PC; how would the device tree get changed so Linux and the things running under it know to drive it differently than the old one?
