This whole discussion to me even more strongly suggests that the
current way of trying to satisfy these requirements on kernels
availability shouldn't really be delegated only to packages content.
And that's before we get into ESP size issues. So the idea to split
these apart - packages install to /usr/, and a separate mechanism
manages what is available under /boot/ and for how long, depending also
on how much space there is - seems more and more the right way forward.

Just my 2c.

Kind regards,
