I understand, and I've been wondering about this.  As I do not have much
if any knowledge for the sizing constraints of a bootloader, so I cannot
appreciate the efforts of reducing space.

As a (blonde) user, I would think that you'd want to use *as much*
rather than as little space you can.  Why not (from a sizing pov,
stability could be another issue), after core.img contains
all necessary modules, fill up any `remaining' space (if that is how it
works) with extra non-essential modules?  Little harm in the ability
to read more devices, I would say?
