Probably because it was written by (predominantly) Debian/Ubuntu people that obviously have no concept of users doing what they want.
Placing files under /etc destroys plans like this.
I keep one installation (distro) per physical system so I have control of the boot environment whatever I do with the other distros. Can still be a challenge, but is manageable in my situation.
yes you can install to a logical
partition (not the extended).
