Being unbrickable doesn't mean that bootloaders shouldn't prevent us
from upgrading.

If we can't get bootloaders to work on them now, if we ever need to
upgrade bootloaders again it's going to create more hassle down the
line. We should stick with the currently working system until
bootloaders and binaries both work 100% with the new system, or you're
just passing the work off to some future developer.
