That is a nice looking document, Ryan.  One of the Ubuntu Documentation
contributors, drs305, has written (and been updating) a wiki page on
Grub2, which you can find here [1].  It is geared toward Ubuntu users
who have Grub2 installed from Ubuntu, but a lot of the basics should be
applicable to FreeBSD as well.  You are welcome to expand on the wiki
page, or if you host your guide on a FreeBSD site, please let us know. 
I don't believe the existing wiki page outlines multibooting in much
detail yet, so your knowledge in this field would be very helpful.
