you are responding technically in solving a technical problem that
I presented. For this I thank you.  What I am now saying is that it is
unacceptable as a practice.  At least there should be a patch installed
of listed unsupported hardware that once detected during upgrade it
reconfigures the boot manager with your suggested modification.  Or
refuses the upgrade on the premises of "no longer supported" hardware.

Debian-user is a user support forum, not a developer forum:

	Debian Mailing Lists
	Community assistance and support for Debian users.
	Support for Debian users who speak English.

For bug fixes and policy modifications debian-user is the wrong place for more than passing discussion. I suggest other avenues:

	https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/ mailing list
	https://www.debian.org/Bugs/ bug tracker
	irc://freenode/#debian-next IRC
	http://forums.debian.net/ Debian development forum
