I haven't been having any issues with Fedora/RHEL doing exactly that.
It updates the initrd and grub, including installing any and all the flavors of the
kernel installed (e.g., kernel and kernel-xen, kernel and kernel-pae, etc...).
Or do I misunderstand the comment here?

My main gripe is that distros should package installkernel scripts
that properly update initramfs, grub etc. I compile kernels so
frequently that using the distro machinery like make-kpkg is
overkill, but a simple script that makes "make install" do the right
thing would be very helpful. They aren't complicated but I usually
wind up having to write my own for lack of an existing one.
