That would be a good idea anyway:  Zap the two-stage rescue system 
loading.  Just have a kernel + initramfs.  That would make booting a 
rescue system easier as the (todays) small initramfs doesn't need some 
way to grap the second stage from somewhere.

Having a rescue system in /boot would be trivial then: just copy kernel 
+ rescue.initramfs from the install.iso to /boot and add a grub menu 
entry -> done.
