I have much the same setup as you,
and I get upgraded kernels, like any other package.

I can imagine situations in which your system -
where you have one grub starting another grub on another disk -
would have advantages,
but for 99% of users the standard system, 
with one grub on the MBR of the first disk,
works perfectly well, no matter how many OS's you have.
