) . for what u were talking about, there are utilityes like watchdogs

really not the bootloaders job to watch for what happens to the system
after it booted (i.e. the kernel is loaded and it has taken control..)

none for this purpose; and lilo works as I had expected).

No, it is not really the bootloader's job to do that. But if it did, why
not. It will, in my setup, however be the bootloader's job to retrieve some
info from the system about its successes and failures, for consecutive
