It depends on which spec you look :)

UEFI HEST table specification also claims that it should be the ultimate
table for when PCI firmware-first should be disabled/enabled.

I think somebody needs to fix these. I saw an email from Harb Abdulhamid

That's why I suggested circulating this idea in UEFI forums first.
Let's see what everybody thinks. We can go from there.
