Well, one can certainly do this. The "make install" dream is just that,
a dream. You can set a standard saying the kernel belongs in /boot, but
that doesn't mean everyone will put it there.

In my opinion, the process of installing a kernel should require a certain
IQ from the installer. That means no button for a trained monkey to push.
(You would be amazed the mount of shit I've had to clean up following the
pushing of that button by a "trained" (huge assumtion) monkey.)
