There are no known 'world is broken' bugs in f16 right now; glibc -6 is
known to break the world, but it never made it out of -testing. -4 and
-7 are both okay. Web development stuff isn't heavily exercised in any
of our programmed testing, and I'm not aware of anyone else who uses F16
for that stuff, so you may be the first to really exercise that whole
stack in F16 if you update.

No, if you upgrade from f15 to f16 you stick with grub-legacy, as things
stand, and I believe that's how it's going to be for release.
