I can't believe I'm suggesting this (we've come full circle now) but we could 
add a new bootloader in gnu/bootloader/grub.scm, 

(define* grub-hybrid-bootloader ; or grub-mkrescue-bootloader, maybe less 
   (inherit grub-efi-bootloader)
grub-configuration-file-without-search-emission) ; this here could parametrize 
grub-configuration-file somehow or maybe we could refactor 
grub-configuration-file instead.
   ; Note: name is still 'grub-efi, so the public boot parameters API doesn't 
   (package grub-hybrid))) ; probably; or grub-efi if you just want a quick 
test with EFI only.

... and use it in iso9660-image or gnu/system/install.scm .
