Might probably ask GNOME folks for an on-screen keyboard or even Professor himself, maybe GRUB3 will be a microkernel bootloader supporting shared libraries then.</>

I'd argue that one should carry out an experiment in getting through the bootloader with an external keyboard and then unplugging it to understand whether it's really a showstopper.

Is there any intuitive work-around not involving the touch screen? such as using the volume buttons or other external key that might be much simpler to interface with?

It would be awesome to have both mouse and touch-pad support someday.

Touch devices which use grub (like wetab) need touch support so you can select the entries without an external keyboard.
