I don't agree with this. chainloader and ntldr don't share the same
syntax: chainloader expects a bootsector whereas ntldr expects an
ntldr ot bootmgr file. GRUB2 is done to break with bad design
decisions of GRUB1 one of them being "kernel" command. GRUB4DOS
follows GRUB1 on this subject.

I agree.

It probably would make sense that the 'ntldr' command does simple signature checks and fail on unknown files unless '--force' is specified.
