grub2-install as multiboot target?

So, if the trend of the future is to use the new grub2
multiboot stuff instead of chain loading, shouldn't there
be some way to tell grub2-install: "Hey, I want you
to install in this partition so I can make you a
multiboot target".

As near as I can tell, the way grub2-install works
now, you have to use the --force option to make it
try and use blocklists to install in a partition,
and that's the only option for installing in a
partition rather than the MBR.
