--- Comment #23 from H. Peter Anvin <hpa at zytor.com> ---
"All" is a complicated definition; ELF is fundamentally very different from OMF
(mostly in a good way), but it is also desirable to have as low impact as
possible on the toolchains.

I would say you can do at least more or less the same things as you can with
OMF, but you might not be able to do it exactly 100% the same way. For example,
it looks like it will be far saner to have a quite different way to handle
grouped sections (totally used for DGROUP).

For the particular case of DOS code, this shouldn't be any worse than that a
set of macros can be a shared between bin, obj, and elf.
