So what do you think about
   (a) adding root=GUID as a kernel option

That's something you need to ask Linux folks, not GRUB folks. For non-initrd usage, it sounds plausible to me that you'd have a chance of achieving some linux-kernel-change (as long as you restrict the code-bloat to when GPT or a similar partition-table-format-with-uuids is enabled in the kernel-config). But it ought to work in common initrds too, not just non-initrd mode! (Distributors, such as Debian, I think are the people who arrange initrds currently...) So you have a few people to chase down, and ask, and possibly follow up by sending patches to, etc... good luck! Be ingenious in response to flames!
