maybe future custom roms will include the removal of that screen, it is indeed somewhat annoying

That screen cant be removed its in the bootloader. The nexus 5x and 6p also have it.

I'll make that decrypted boot.img into a flashable TWRP zip file tonight so you can just flash it in TWRP instead of having to use Fastboot.
