You're right: that was an error on my part. I've now got ZFS boot 
working with UEFI. :)

I booted the Skylake motherboard with 
FreeBSD-10.3-RC1-amd64-uefi-memstick.img and it successfully installed 
to ZFS *and* loaded at normal speed. Looks like UEFI is the way to go on 
Skylake systems. All tests have gone well so far.
