Boot-on-power setting for the XO?

One of my mid-term goals is to be able to run the XS sw on the XO hw
-- and one of the main recommendations I am making for configuration
of the XS machines is that the BIOS is set to 'boot on power'. This is
mainly because we want as much uptime as possible in locations with
unreliable power supply.

Is there a way to configure OFW, the EC, etc to behave in that way?
("boot on external power")

(The whole XS on XO thing now seems within reach as we have F10
booting on the XO.)
