3.2 /boot : Static files of the boot loader
This directory contains everything required for the boot process except
configuration files and the map installer. Thus /boot stores data that
is used before the kernel begins executing user-mode programs. This may
include saved master boot sectors, sector map files, and other data that
is not directly edited by hand. Programs necessary to arrange for the
boot loader to be able to boot a file should be placed in /sbin.
Configuration files for boot loaders should be placed in /etc.
Note the "other data that is not directly edited by hand". Also note
that although the section title says "static files of the boot loader",
the second sentence says "stores data that is used before the kenrel
begins executing user-mode programs".
Sounds like exactly the correct location to me.
