So, why are we still going back and forth about this?  If people want
to work on coreboot they can do so (I'm sure they have a list).  If
people want to fork coreboot or redo it from scrach they can do so and
start their own list.

When it is shiny and perfect and has a following of hundreds of linux
users we can always discuss whether we recommend using it in the
handbook on -dev then.  Otherwise it seems about as on-topic as
debating whether grub or systemd or openrc should have feature A/B/C -
we're a DISTRO - we integrate and ship what upstream gives us...
