To be honest, I don't have a problem with that even though we use LILO as 
default.  I don't think this is a problem here because those that are tweeking 
with their kernels like that here are usually the ones that don't use YUM to 
update their kernel.  I could be wrong, but if doing LILO is what's holding 
you back for this, I say go for the 'grub-only' support.  Especially for the 
yum 2.0 stuff.
