It's supposed to be, yes.

IIRC this was solved via IRC already, but just for the archive I'm
quoting we've in our FAQ nowadays:

| Starting with release 2009.10 Grml provides a menu based bootsplash.
| To adjust boot options just press the TAB-key. To directly switch to
| the old-style isolinux cmdline just press the escape key within 30
| seconds. If you still need access to the old bootsplash layout
| (including the f2, f3,... pages with further information regarding
| available bootoptions) select the entry 'Isolinux prompt' in the
| menu based bootsplash (just press 'i' and ENTER for direct access to
| it). The timeout until either the selected entry is booted (if
| specified) or until the system will restore from the cmdline to the
| menu based bootsplash is 30 seconds.
