grubby vs. grub2-mkconfig

There are at least two bugs that sum the confusion and remains in F17:

In short: kernel install adds option to grub.cfg using grubby, while 
grub2-mkconfig generates a different menuentries.

Why, if the boot loader is grub2, the menuentry is not generated at 
kernel install the same way as when generated by grub2-mkconfig?

The only reason I know is, that "people tend to modify grub.cfg manually", 
but with grub2 this is plain wrong anyway. Why do we support this messy 
setup then?
