I'm going to repeat. I don't think any impromevent here.

with no specific kernel load address the uImage for is useless/

And this no the job of the kernel to build a boot loader specific boot image
format.

And the uImage format here is called the legacy format where now U-Boot
support a new format based on DT format.

Will you plan to add it too?

no sorry I don't think it's the right way to go.

On X86 we boot zImage simply. The new uImage option to do not specify the load
address add nothing more than just boot a zImage for kernel point of view.

Further more on server the vendor will use grub mostly (even on ARM) and will
expect to boot a zImage.
