We've not been pushing any "default bootloader" in the past, nor will we
do so in the future.
I believe coreboot is about freedom and choice. And about making stuff
that people can actually use.
Now, this last criteria is different for a multitude of use cases.

I wonder whether we need to keep our own GRUB2 page at all, since
there's a coreboot page in the GRUB2 wiki already and if things go as
you suggest, one of them will eventually be a copy of the other one.
