Does anyone have suggestions for getting Grub to dual-boot a HAMMER
DragonflyBSD?  If this is hopeless, what can I do to place the
absolute minimum amount of code on a bootable non-HAMMER area, and the
dominant part of DBSD in Hammer?

Hopeless. You'll at least need a /boot UFS partition. Also you'll probably have to modify grub to read DragonFly disklabels (although I have a setup here booting with grub, so I don't know how I managed that :). Oh yes, you'd need a disklabel32, not a disklabel64 to have the slightest chance of making grub work.

Or try a /boot in ext2, then also grub should be able to read it :D

Alternatively you could try using a chainloader in grub.
