Yes, let me look into how quickly we can get this into Byzantium. (There are two routes - wait for an update from upstream packaging, e.g. Debian, or upload our own package directly amber.) Uploading the new package directly to amber is likely the fastest way to close this bug.

An administrator has to remove accounts from the command line. Alternatively, an admin can "disable" your account which stops mail and your ability to login - is this sufficient or would you like the information permanently deleted?

There are parts of the EFI stack that are proprietary, this is why we do not include them in our installer. Other projects may include them in their "non-free" repos but because we're a FSF compliant Free Software distro we don't include non-free repositories. We continue to investigate if there is a way to support GPT.
