Comment (by phoudoin):

 I'm with modeenf here (both novice and interested ;-):
 is this could unlock us poor GPT partitions guys?

 AFAIK, our current boot loader don't support yet GPT, which needs
 - to map/sync the MBR table with the GPT one,
 - Haiku bootable partition(s) to live in the first 4 partitions

 What this universal MBR will offer? No more MBR / GPT tables sync and no
 first 4 partitions limit?
