Depends which bit of the boot protocol you mean.
The kernel interface is pretty well set.
Where we go with regards to UEFI Secure Boot is an open question.

I did have a look at turning the linuxefi patches into a generic
variant with architecture-specific hooks where required, but:
1) I still have hope of not needing the shim solution in the aarch64
2) I didn't have a gnu-efi port to build the shim with.
