Because some user may have a partition /boot part of the root, with limited space, this can result in installation failure.
but it is a case to consider

Just a few questions about this package and grub2 theme packages in general: Why not directly install it to /boot/grub/themes/? Users with different install locations (probably the minority) could change the PKGBUILD, and users with standard install location (probably the majority) wouldn't have to copy the theme to the grub directory.
I know there is this starfield theme in /usr/share/grub/themes that belongs to grub2-common, but wouldn't it make sense to directly put it to a folder that grub can reach (speaking of which: can grub actually reach other folders?... afaik it used to dislike splashimages not below /boot/grub/*)?
Maybe these are stupid questions and they are ruled out by security issues/ pure logic?
Not quite sure what the convention is here, but for me the copying kinda feels like a redundant thing to do.
