The UEFI spec allows for additional ESPs and the FreeBSD installer
creates one of its own, but I reckon one is sufficient. Besides, I
installed FreeBSD entirely on my own, due to my long list of
specialised ZFS filesystems.

Unless I want to boot the default, I have to hit F12 every time I want
to boot something else. This is on a Dell Latitude E5530. If I could
persuade the UEFI boot firmware to always present its menu, I wouldn't
need rEFInd at all. It's nice to have something that presents me with
a menu and remembers what I chose the last time and selects that after
a configureable timeout. It's also nice to have additional means
readily available should rEFInd implode.
