Writing the EFI platform bindings however, is something you will need to
do anyway.
Our EFI boot app located on the system partition (FAT) needs to load
haiku_loader from BFS the way I was thinking. Or are you suggesting
haiku_loader IS the boot app?

Now you understood it :-)

If so, could there be any problem with haiku_loader being in a different ABI?

How so? The haiku_loader to kernel handover is not ABI dependent.
