I have first-draft code to detect signatures of particular programs in the post-MBR gap and avoid the relevant sectors when writing the GRUB core image. I'd like to inspect some data dumps first to confirm that this strategy will be viable, and of course gathering the signatures will probably be an ongoing process, but at least the necessary code in GRUB does not appear to be very difficult.
