unless there is some other major advantage to grub ofc

There are major advantages with grub.  It understand several file
systems (no need to update the boot block if the kernel or initrd is
updated), and it contains a simple editor (so one can fix the boot
parameters if the current ones are busted).

There are also minor advantages, but I leave them out here.

like you can have a completely broken (or not) configuration and still boot the system. A week or so my recovery CD proved not to work on the system needing recovery and I finally fixed it with nothing more than a grub floppy.
