I agree that it would be easy to switch to a vendor encapsulated option, but I 
hesitate to do that, because GRUB has been using that option for 5 years, and 
compatibility is the most important thing for me.

However, I understand why the reclassification is necessary and I respect such 
an effort. So, if it is inevitable not to keep using that option, I will 
change GRUB.
