Current 32-bit protocol is very useful on platforms like coreboot.
Removing its use in GRUB combined with Linux devs like hpa who are
hostile to coreboot (and blocked introduction of 32-bit interface for
years until bowing to EFI), I fear that 32-bit entry point might become
unusable very quickly.
Speaking of quirk handling, when I asked about mjg details he was very
vague and details are important.
