That's a very limited logic. Commands can be modified and protocols can
be extended.
There was only one e-mail explaining the needs and I answered with
proposing possible solutions yet the 2 e-mails in question were
completely ignored.
What's the need behind not calling ExitBootService? This is a point
which was never really explained to me. EFI specification specifically
tells to call ExitBootService.
