Do you plan any custom ROM space where user could load some modules, drivers, libraries to be initialized during the boot. I mean something like we have Luciferin on Deneb that provides 4 MB ROM space where you can load USB drivers, new libraries, special modules, etc.

The Vampire comes with 1 MB Flash ROM space.
You can use it for example to flash AROS as our preferred OS.

Could some ability to kickstart e.g. emuTOS/FreeMINT basics from ROM instead of one HD partition, or as said, an AROS 68k? Beside using older Amiga Kickstarts, could some extended 1MB ROM be presented with e.g. large HDD, ISO CD/DVD, Kickstart other two tool (or best in both mouse button menu) ... be presented?

And do you plan to create software (like Luciferin) for loading modules into the ROM?
