I will put Qi in the NAND boot loader.
It's also possible to edit the environment of u-boot NAND from debian with
uboot-envedit and nandwrite as install.sh does (http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-

than in a menu-less boot.
It could also be edited from a PC using a cu,neocon,... when it is in the NAND
The NOR u-boot and environ need of the debug board
