You can already do this with the --overlay=DIR option.  I do this to
add fonts, images, and graphical menu themes to the resulting ISO image
in addition to my custom grub.cfg.

Your option --configfile option does make the case when you only want
to include your own grub.cfg file easier, by not requiring you to
create a directory hierarchy of DIR/boot/grub/ to contain grub.cfg
