Sorry in advance if this was already discussed but the only thread I could find was this one: https://veracrypt.codeplex.com/discussions/569763
Also, since the last answer was months ago, I thought I'd bring that up again

Is it possible to add an option that would allow creating the bootloader on USB instead of the drive?

From what I understood, when encrypting the system partition ("Or entire drive"), only the bootloader is unencrypted and can be identified
Allowing to remove the drive's bootloader and place it on USB could be really helpful.
Just plug in your USB, type your password, computer turn on, remove USB

In that case, the drive would be fully encrypted if I'm not wrong, I just think that's a great idea and I'm sure some other people do as well
