My idea is: OSes on the (internal) nvd0 (SSD) disk for performance reasons; data on external devices e.g. HDDs, SSDs, M-disks (local archive), USB sticks, clouds,...

The risks, for my system, were very, very low.  As a matter of fact, I hadn't modified the EFI partition, and the original installation was almost complete.  The final step is perhaps the most dangerous.

I solved the problem myself, thanks to Per Hedeland's suggestion, trivially carrying out that final step, and have already posted to -questions the no frills "solution".
