That is just the same mechanism as labels.  Note however that you still

Except, they can duplicate. But no need to quarrel here !

In the end, a DHCP-like system might evolve; scanning any plugged drive,
reading by all means your labels, and offer to mount the partitions /


That is an interesting one which I didn't know. Thanks !

Now, you still need it running *not* on one of your drives; but on CF or so.

It is also high time, to remove grub from the installs and give it a
place in an extended BIOS,


God beware ! Intel's approach to 'trusted' hardware. I would not touch it with a pair of pliers ! - But maybe FreeBIOS can support something like that ?
