DFU surely beats the hell out of those things :-)

What I'm refering to are more complex setup scenarios, where you
need more interaction than merely writing partitions. E.g., the
use of DFU to upload a self-contained system to RAM and running it
there would be such a case.

Regarding DFU, since it's indeed very nice for simple tasks, it
may be interesting to make the Linux kernel DFU-capable. (At some
point in time.)
