  Of course, the plan exists, as GRUB should follow the
specification. But AFAIK, nobody works on this for now.

  Maybe, but IMO, it would be much easier for OS writers to let a boot
loader locate modules appropriately, because they wouldn't have to be
worried about the locations any longer. I know that there are some
people who don't like to add another format into Multiboot, but I'll
add this in the future, because you won't have to use the format, if
you don't like it.
