Upgrading FreeBSD

Basically it consists of (re)compilation and installation of world + kernel
However, 2 parts are always ommited:
Stage 1 - mbr|boot0
Stage 2 - boot
I won't also mention GPT part ...

Stage 3 - loader (is "covered" by world install)

Should it be expanded to world + kernel + bootcodes
The old way, one could pull it's old bootcodes, from 6.0 to 10.0 world + kernel

And bootcodes are changing. I've got bitten by bug in stage 2 boot, during 8.2 -> 9.0.
