Some of those are provided already by grub commands through use of
scripting language. See sample grub.cfg at the end of:

If there will be 'for' construct in scripting language, otherwise I do
not see any reason to make things complicated. You are talking about
feature needed by rather limited user base. And even that user base can
use the existing way of declaring menu to fill their needs to show entries.

Please try to remember we are developing a boot loader where really
extensive windowing system is not needed (and would bloat the
requirements of the software).
