I think this pair of topics would therefore be suitable for the devel
list, and perhaps even cross posting to the upstream ovmf/edk2 list
(which I know just moved off sf.net, but I'm not sure where too...).

IIRC Andrew would like to make hvmloader multiboot aware, such that it
can be passed the BIOS as a payload (loaded by the toolstack) and
avoiding the need to build it into hvmloader statically. AFAIAA there
has been no work done on this front, but if you were interested in
picking it up that would be pretty awesome.
