seems to me that the default for almost any of these situations is to be
silent and force a verbose option via the menu.lst file.  This would allow
you to explicitly control what is said and when it is said.  Since you have
to have a menu.lst in order to boot anything anyway, then this should be no
hardship for those involved and you no longer have any hidden features that
you don't keep from people.
