For example, I can use it to store keys for full-disk encryption and keys will be released only if boot loader is secure.
Yeah, that's great. Now attackers can't pull the disks and put them in something else. Of course, this is really very unlikely. Much more likely is that the machine will eventually fail (as they always do) and then you
can't put the disks in something else, and you'll be cursing that you ever went near the TPM in the first place.
