Ofcourse - this stuff may be redundant if you use a boot loader. But personally I hate boot loaders, and I think the whole idea of copying and renaming binaries is nothing but awkward.

That's true, but when using a boot manager it's a lot easier to do this than editing configuration-files which I would have to do if I started everything from mint.cnf. But there's no problem in creating a boot-manager that works by manipulating mint.cnf or perhaps a startup-script run from mint.cnf. It could also (de)activate the correct device drivers for the current hardware.
