There are two reasons I see for using a chainloader: 

To boot directly—like you do, you have to always symlink the latest kernel and 
initramfs in the PureOS, or other GNU system, boot dir to the generic ones that 
you mention in the config. 

Also if you need to boot let's say the Windows partition, you can do it via the 
PureOS GRUB menu, since it will have an OS prober entry for this partition. 

For both you need to use chainloader, not direct boot. So that's what I'd like 
to do via system reconfigure—currently I have to manually edit the generated 
grub.cfg file.
