Even that could be tested, by installing an update and then initing UEFI?

Yes. Easy testing is so important for developer productivity and
happiness. It is fine to have large system/functional tests as a fall
back or catch-all, but they tend to test the happy path only. When
they fail, they are hard to debug because they cover such as large
area of the code and they often have complex setup requirements so are
hard to run manually.
My hope is that all the functionality should be covered by unit tests
or integration tests, so that system/functional almost never fail.

OK thank you.
