How common is it to build EFI roms, compared to building ipxe.efi or
On IRC, roms is quite rare topic compared to non rom builds, but maybe
that's because those that build roms don't have that many questions.
My preferred default would be IPv6 enabled for EFI but not PCBIOS, but
focus on the most frequent build/usecase.

Adding "rom64k" and "rom128k" sounds like a good basics to then
disable features from the normal?
