Follow-up Comment #5, bug #34326 (project grub):

But this is not adding anything that a user cannot currently do. 

It simply provides a piece of text and an explanation of what this action is
doing, it doesn't mean bypassing sudo or anything.

For example, at the moment if I run 

pkexec grub-reboot

It asks me for my password, and if the admin of this PC says so, then I can
run /usr/sbin/grub-reboot as root

However if this file was shipped, everything would be the same, except that
when the window popped up asking for my password, there would be an
appropriate message there.
