I have used LILO to boot NetBSD, back in the ancient of days when I had
DOS, Linux and NetBSD all on one machine. It worked fine.
The only problem with your setup would be that you could not modify the
LILO settings without booting Linux on the system. I have no idea how
hard it would be to port LILO to NetBSD.
What's so bad about selecting the boot partition with a function key?
