A simpler solution that would be very useful for Debian is to support
building floppy images (seems to be broken atm).  Even if we can't access
the CD, floppy images can be used with El Torito emulation to provide rescue
CD images that give you a grub shell.

Do you have an idea on how to build these floppy images?  The instructions
about concatenating boot.img with core.img don't work here.

Btw, with grub legacy it was possible to generate these images without need
for root privileges.  We need that for grub2 too.
