As much as I like the SFLC's request, I'm a little apprehensive about its approval given that it sounds a little vague. It would certainly accommodate non-Windows users' (myself included) desire to be able to install other OSes on Secure UEFI boot devices.
On the other hand, the EFF request seems more specific—and it has been implemented once before, thereby setting a precedent of sorts. What I'm unclear about is whether the Copyright Office deems a Secure UEFI boot device to be "jailed" to begin with (I personally think so).
