If we go that way then we have to care about them by the end of the
universe. And this means more and more issues like [1]. If somebody
wants to use new GRUB then he/she have to reinstall the machine or
something like that. IMO we should not care about users who do not want
upgrade their machines or whatnot. Or at least their choices cannot
impact GRUB development too much. And I think that this MBR constraint
is hindering the project too much at this point. So, as above...
