Yes. Consider a world of checksummed filesystems. In such world you
can't change the contents of the file by just writing to its blocklist
since it will break the checksum. Similar problems exist with RAIDs
and LVMs. On some systems we can't put grub-env in a file. For these
cases we can embed grub-env somewhere where we can write it with ease
