If we don't keep an eye on it, your next desktop may simply refuse to boot your OS of choice.
I can assure you that my next desktop will definitely boot the OS of my choice. Market pressure will ensure that there will always be some open systems.
Vendor-lockin-boot proposals have been made several times in the past and have never gone anywhere. I have no reason to believe this latest proposal will go anywhere either, at least not on commodity desktop machines.
