This is another thing I like about Gentoo - why have /boot mounted when you don't need it? It holds the most important pieces of data to make the machine boot, so why leave it vulnerable? Having started with Gentoo, I still don't understand why other distros automount /boot, or worse, put /boot onto the root partition.
