Due to the way that gfxterm is implemented (I believe) "sleep --verbose" isn't actually verbose at all when viewed via gfxterm. This means that using a standard grub-mkconfig generated grub.cfg with GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=10 and GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=false there is no indication to the user that grub has started and is counting down while waiting for input to show the grub menu, they will simply see a completely black screen for ten seconds.
