I don't know yet why is it necessary, etc -- so I can't say much about
the usefulness of the feature.

But my question also included the possibility that you mention, that
is, if you have plans to contact GRUB devels to integrate that feature
in the upstream version, or they already rejected it, or what.
Whatever works so people don't need to use forks of the tools would be
nice, I think :)
