Hmmmm, I'm afraid there is a little misunderstanding
here. grub-installer really uses the "title" option of course.

However, as Debian Installer tries to detect other operating systems
on the installed system, and add GRUB menu entries for them, it indeed
uses a "fake" menu entry, named "Other operating systems", which just
does nothing......and below it are the real entries for booting the
detected Operatin SYstems such as Windows flavours, other Linux
installs, Solaris, whatever....

The bug submitter here just mentioned that the "Other operating
Systems" entry just did nothing.

So I turned out to a kind of wishlist for GRUB : having some possible
"section titles", just needed for sorting things, on which the pointer
cannot be moved (it just moves over it).

As the bug submitter mentioned, this is far from being critical, more
a wishlist and probably to be forwarded upstream.

So, if that kind of special title is currently not possible with GRUB,
I'd prefer see this bug assign to grub, of course.
