Currently I try to migrate our old pxeboot systems from pxelinux to iPXE, and it will be nice to re-utilize all existing menu and submenus.
Also, I prefer to have ability to edit boot parameters from this menu.
I know, that for iPXE it is not config, but script, and I can add something with "read ${var}". But "add something" is not equal to "add, modify or erase something".
Also, i miss some "hints" functionality (like MENU TABMSG for menu.c32) - when user highlight some item, show him a short description about this item (and probably to have similar descriptions for the whole menu/submenu as well, "item --gap" is not the same).
Also, time to time I import content of some ISO images to pxe servers, and it is very easy to adopt isolinux menu for pxelinux. Usually just copy-paste.
