Like most new ideas it isn't altogether bad. The biggest downer IMO that will stop acceptance is that you are robbed of the quick 'editing' of a reluctant grub, especially on an unknown box.
This would almost require a note stuck on the side of a box with the uuidl's and partition scheme.
If not, one would be required to use a bootable medium like  a live-CD every time, to get into a reluctant box and either get those uuidl's or generate new ones.
Where the latter option requires the use of 'tune2fs'.


Good luck,
