Sure, instead it'll freeze at stage 1.5. Hardly an improvement.
But how often does that happen? I've never seen it myself.
I don't understand that - unless your different kernel versions are all

- You don't have to rerun grub every time you changed the config file
Except that you do, unless you believe in symlinks for your kernels..
Since when? I don't symlink my kernel and I don't rerun grub every
time I upgrade my kernel, and yet it Just Works(tm).
