I think GRUB's decision to use a dedicated partition was borne of past experience--for example, some DRM software happily assumes it's OK to scribble over sectors in the gap... since partitions are not as scare a resource with GPT as their were with MBR, the balance is tipped in favour of having a dedicated partition to prevent this kind of thing happening again.
