I don't have a clue what the "grub root" is or what you mean by 
"root=/", hence I cannot interpret the question.

I never have a separate /boot (or /home) partition, as I have never 
managed to figure out a reason for it. It is just unnecessary 
complexity without benefit. I always have 3 versions of fedora 
installed (current, current-1 and current+1), so each has a root (/) 
partition that contains everything, the whole kit and 'kabootle'.
