Maybe, but for me uboot is enough.

I am happy with uboot and religiously deny to use Uefi, because it comes from evil corporations!

What's Uefi? Can it run Kodi?

UEFI for Pine64

This is not idyll, but rather normal. Which "decent" boards do you have in mind? My guess is that these are probably some very old boards, using a very old version of U-Boot and most likely having almost no real users remaining nowadays (because the boards are old, not sold anymore and used to be relatively expensive).

You can probably implement your UEFI firmware for these decent boards. Or just bring U-Boot support up to date and add the missing features, which is likely orders of magnitude easier.
