First response .... So no alternative for the moment.... (do you want to code support in seabios ? ;)

maybe can we add the code for generate qemu -option-rom 8xx_64.rom , 
do not include de rom in proxmox packages, but tell the user to download it and put it in the /usr/share/kvm ?

Something like proprietary nvidia blob video driver.

what do you think about it ?

It is, e.g. via native support in SeaBIOS. But someone has to implement
that. Or motivate a third party to do this.
