<Question>: Grub with GPT disks

In times of large disks there is a need to change from msdos partition tables to gpt
( support of partitions > 2 TB, or support of more than 15 partitions ).
But it looks like, that grub supports only booting of partition 1,2 or 3.
Are there any plans to remove this restriction ??
Browsing the web, it looks like that “lilo” does not have this restriction, but changing to
“lilo” would be a step back in time.
Many thanks in advance for your information.
Best regards,
