"experimental"?

Is this written in stone some where yet?

hmmm... This makes it appear that nothing is decided upon yet.

How would anyone know to use this unless qemu.conf was modified to
describe the possibility?

See commit id '436dcf0b' for when AAVMF was originally added keeping in
mind that commit id 'f2f1e388' fixed the names/path. This will give a
better idea of what additional files should be changed.

Not that it's in my wheelhouse, but I'm somewhat surprised by the notion
to have the AAVMF directory have both 64 and 32 bit files... Guess I'm
surprised it's not AAVMF32/ since it would seem easier to be able to
have consistent names of "%s_VARS.fd" and "%s_CODE.fd" to go with the
/usr/share/%s/ path when trying to "build" a name.  I've asked the
QEMU/OVMF maintainer in this space and get his insights as well.
