Hm. There's no method to search the mailman archive via its interface.
Googling "site:redhat.com fedora-desktop-list grub ..." gives a lot of
hits but unfortunately nothing pertinent to this discussion. Care to
give a pointer?

Actually the only sensible thing to do would be to let anaconda
configure grub to show the menu if another OS is configured during
installation and skip the menu if another OS isn't configured. People
who configure their systems for dual/multi-boot will want to see the
menu while others won't.
