You misrepresent what folks are trying to do. The work in this area is to enable users a frictionless installation of their choosen distribution, and allow hachkish types to set up secure boot to handle self-compiled kernels without disabling it completely. I do agree that this whole mess is a misguided "security" feature at best, and a thinly veiled attempt from software-vendors/"content"-distributors to stab at controlling our machines at will at worst. In any case, it is being forced down out throats, we have to see how to make the best of it.
