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.)
