I suppose there's merrit to the idea of not mounting /boot, but wherever 
I've seen a boot partition used, /boot is always included in the fstab 
for mounting.  Otherwise, you would need a whole level of scripting in 
update utilities, like dpkg, update-initramfs and update-grub for them 
to know they need to mount/unmount boot.
