I am recalling developers here that Michael Vogt has given a hint on how to fix this in:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub/+bug/8497/comments/11 by using kernel option CONFIG_EDD that was deactivated because of a bug that is now fixed: http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/show_bug.cgi?id=8899 , it is possible to get disk order as seen by the BIOS.
Like he said, more info on CONFIG_EDD can be found at:

This seems a better approach than UUID (according to Michael).
Unfortonately, Michael Vogt is not any more a subscriber of this bug (probably have become too noisy).

So hope that there is still a developer here to listen.

Please refrain of giving just examples of broken systems, what is needed now is to discuss how to fix, not to know that it is broken.
