Are you saying USB support is not needed?

You can kind of do that with UEFI now assuming you can boot to the EFI shell:
dmpstore * > fs0:\vars.txt

Typically though, all the settings you can change in the setup screens are stored in one big data lump based on a C data structure. It should be handy for OEMs when more ship boards with UEFI, and it has been helpful for some of the work I do. If they keep this system in the future and UEFI is common, OEMs will disclose at least some of what is in the structure for things like tech support.
