I admit to not knowing how / whether that can be done, and from which
version etc.  Your existing wiki page about "using-large-disks" is
useful; could you perhaps be inspired to write a follow-on about the
above theme?

For BIOS based machines this is complex

Have I missed some context here? It is not complex to boot a BIOS-based machine from a GPT disk. That's what gpt biosboot is for. I've been using even on NetBSD 5 on a 4TB hardware RAID array (backported the changes from newer NetBSD to -5).
