It could, but:
- it breaks the principle of least surprise (users expect it to
modify grub.cfg only)
- it opens the door for old module files lingering around if
something goes wrong
I think this would be worse than the current situation.

Installing all modules in /boot hierrachy is an option too. Or implementing
pivot_root and then using initrds.
As for the symlinks, if you go this route next release of GRUB would
probe the new location, making them unnecessary in mid-term.
