almost always is almost wrong.
I e.g. have extlinux installed as a package, but not in the mbr (for
preparing bootable usb drives with unetbootin).
The same might apply for grub(.*) because you want to create a bootable
efi disk while your machine has pc bios and vice versa.
Imagine some more [need bootloader to prepare/fix something] sitautions
