sc(4) is still better quality for BIOS-based systems or EFI-based with CSM legacy mode working.
sc(4) is better to such an extent FreeBSD's unusable with vt(4) for some fresh systems being sold
but boots and works fine with sc(4). An example with many people complaining:

I'd like more FreeBSD developers respect POLA these days
and take responds like "I've always used sc(4), it works for me don't touch it" seriously.

Please, don't touch what works and works good.
