This is now my opinion, too.
Regrettably the code has some history of stop-and-go development.
I added features when Vladimir requested them. And now i cannot
remember all the motivations.

But it is surely no inadverted change. At worst it was a decision
which has some drawbacks.

We could create an option in xorriso and in grub-mkrescue
by which the user can override the automatic decision.
Like --mark-mbr-part-bootable $part_number
(or shorter :)).

Have a nice day :)
