Well, at least some text suggesting that you might do so would be good,
I thing
+1
could be something like:
"<label> is starting in <x> seconds" on top
and
"press any key to see the boot menu" on bottom ...

not telling the user what's goin' on, sounds like windows to me.
( i actually had one system with windows xp wich for unknown reasons stayed at black screen for 30 minutes or more before starting :) )

On a similar note, I noticed the progress bar finishes long before the
boot process (I think somewhere around the time services start to
start). This isn't an expected behaviour from user point of view.
Actually it is pretty weird... I've installed readahead (not sure though
if it is enabled, or how to enable it if not) and disabled some unneeded
services which resulted in the progress bar showing up incomplete for
about only a third of the boot process (and completing really fast).
When I look at the real progress after the progress bar is already
finished, I see services starting.
