IMO, both wedge: and NAME= are ugly, but beside your point I would be in
favor of NAME= because that is what I used in x86 bootloaders, and
lazyness commands not to redo it. :-)

When you talk about letting it go, you means removing it, or just
keeping it as is undocumented? Removing could break some setups badly.

I suspect  the wedge: references there could now just be replaced by
NAME= after  src/sys/kern/kern_subr.c 1.226-1.227 was committed.
