You (or some dev) can just remove the hardcode. Clean codebase wins :)

Whether rw is faster does not matter. What matters is the kernel has its own default and if users prefer otherwise they can change in grub.cfg or /etc/default/grub. Having either rw or ro in 10_linux is silly.

You can just add "rw" to kernel options. Last option wins.

I agree. Sometimes it is faster to mount a FS "rw" directly rather than mounting "ro" first.

There is no reason to hardcode any specific kernel param in the grub.d file. Any preference or recommendation can be written in /etc/default/grub.
