It doesn't really matter.  GRUB 2 is free software, so if it doesn't support
TPM, someone else will provide a modified version.

We can't stop the evil by refusing to implement it, but at least we can speak
out about it, and let people know that TPMs are inherently designed to restrict
against the legitimate owner of a device.

I once came across this comment on slashdot, which summarises the problem
very well IMHO:
