Is this proposed dropping of grub only for 'desktop' Fedora?
 iiuc, server/workstation instances share the same underpinnings?

For server/workstation, "access the boot menu, select a boot entry, or edit the 
kernel command line" are certainly NOT _uncommon_.

Very often, particularly when tracking closely with upstream latest releases, 
they're very often _necessary_.

re: sd-boot docs, grub -- for both BIOS & UEFI -- has available encyclopedic & 
thorough documentation.

its configs are also wonderfully portable.  including/across the countless 
other distros that (will) continue to use/support it.

*dropping* grub for the next bright-n-shiny seems to make little sense.  
*adding* "sd-boot" (tbh, i've never come across an instance of it in use. 
anywhere.), and support *both* -- whether or not it's 'bloat -- doesn't make 
much sense either.
