	Which is on tmpfs most of the time, anyway.

	For the slightest chance that I may one day move away from
	GNU/Linux, I keep bootloader's files on a separate FS.
	(Presumably, even if I'd move to another system, I'll hardly
	part with GRUB.)

	To put it another way, I do not consider an installed bootloader
	to be part of a system (while its installer may be such a part.)
	And indeed, I've used to have a bootable floppy disk
	(CompactFlash, USB Flash) image with GRUB installed, but
	otherwise hardly related to GNU/Linux.  (Say, it might contain
	Memtest86+, FreeDOS, and some random data.)
