Alas! Ian Molton spake thus:

No, that's bad. LFS, IMO, is about getting a bootable base system that
is completely independant on the host system. Without a bootloader, it
then relies on the host's bootloader in order to boot, which would then
prevent it from being completely independant of the host.
I think the book should move to grub, but then have a little blurb about
how grub isn't the only bootloader, and mention where to find
instructions for other bootloaders (hints, blfs, tldp.org maybe?).
