One possibility for retaining early diagnostic messages by default while allowing the possibility of disabling them if desired would be to create a non-default installation option such as:

grub-install --no-early-diagnostic-messages

Which would install grub without any of these early diagnostic messages.

Might such a patch be accepted?

These messages are very early, before any configuration kicks in. Disabling those messages makes problem diagnostic almost impossible as bunch of unrelated problems which are currently distinguishible as stop after "GRUB", "GRUB loading" or "GRUB loading\nWelcome to GRUB" would conflate into a single symptom of black screen.

There's no way to disable Grub2 welcome message:
Grub loading...
Welcome to Grub

Please provide a way to disable it.
