I agree with you.  As long as the entry labels clearly show which one is
the most recent, that sounds good.

However!  On headless machines, we’d rather make sure users know about
this change.  On our Libreboot “bayfront” server, GRUB for some reason
fails to display anything, and on several occasions we’ve had to blindly
select an older generation.  Hopefully this is an unusual situation ;-),
but it could happen on ARM boards as well.
