Most distros install grub2 in the MBR, you have no choice.
Could you please name them?
AFAIK Fedora is one.
Sorry, Andrey, Fedora uses grub2.

Fedora installs grub2 in the MBR unconditionally
No no no, fedora uses grub2

Non sequitur

OK, my mistake. The talk about grub (legacy) confus-ed me.

That's alright - all that happens is that Fedora will become the dominant OS and therefore the first one to appear for booting on the grub's boot menu.

But at the same time I believe that you can also create a separate boot partition where you can put a "main" bootloader. At least this is according to my theory :-) . And now that you have pointed out my confu-sion I shall have to install Fedora to disprove my theorum :-) .

(But, heck, Fedora is as bad as Windows by writing its boot info in the MBR.)
