Grace periods typically don’t apply across registrar transfers, so why would they apply across registry transfers?  Would the EBERO providers be willing to provide grace period credits for transactions they never received funds for?  Going down the path of trying to get the grace periods to transfer will lead to a large list of issues.  My recommendation is for the grace periods to only be applicable within the life of an individual registry, meaning they do not transfer upon failure to an EBERO provider or from an EBERO provider back to a registry.

Will the gaining registry operator really provide grace period

what they will or should support related to grace periods and
credits.  Grace periods is not persisted in our registries and is not
applicable for escrow.

I agree with you that it (storing or recomputing) is a local decision
by each registry.
We may overthink the problem right now because indeed it depends on
what the EBERO will do for domains concerned by grace periods.
And that case has not been seen yet AFAIK.

However, if there is no dates in the escrow at all, it makes it
impossible or very difficult for EBEROs to apply refunds (if they want
to do it of course), while if it is optionally in the escrow (and up to
the registry generating the escrow to provide it or now), then EBEROs
who want to do it can do it (and the others would not care about this
piece of data).
