uefi guidance?

Since efibootmgr has been added, we seem to have all the tools we need now to handle the uefi stuff without just switching to legacy mode. Will there be guidance (how-to or an entry in Changes and Hints) on using them for an install of 14.1 or is it still somewhat experimental?

I'm confident that's what the bit in bold means:

Hey folks, I'm calling this a beta! Really, it's been better than beta quality for a while. There will probably still be a few more updates here and there (and certainly updates to the docs). Enjoy, and please test
