Can't imagine there's any reason for it, when all you have to do is
structure the system reasonably in the first place.  All the failed
upgrade scenarios (why do people bother with preupgrade in the first
place?) seem to involve people thinking they know better than the
automated partitioning tools.

Why add the complexity?

Actually, my installations all took the default 200MB /boot partition. I use preupgrade because, in general, it's awesome. Why don't you ask the developers why they bothered writing it.

If the size of /boot wasn't an issue, I would have had no problems at all with preupgrade. As far as I'm concerned, it removes complexity. What was most interesting to me during the investigation to a workaround was just how simple preupgrade is.
