Would it be possible to restrict use of "-powerpc-small" kernel to just
the floppy with miboot?

The "-powerpc' kernel works great for me with BootX, and I'd rather not
have to deal with loading drivers if I can avoid it.  Especially when
the IDE disk driver (and the like) are so commonly needed that they are
going to be built-in to any kernel that doesn't have to fit on a 1.4MB floppy.
