It's your call, so you decide. ;)
However, here Extlinux has no problemos with the 'grubby', at all[1].
For some time I use Extlinux on Fedora 18, also without problemos.
I haven't even mentioned the Rawhide.
So.
And if I think about it twice, "kernel" is pretty good global keyword
for the kernel's entries, and thus to linux kernel.
But everything is prone to change. =)
