I don't understand what you mean by that. Surely someone can write a spec that says something like:
"Where a UEFI-enabled motherboard supports optical disk drives or USB mass-storage devices, a certified UEFI BIOS shall provide and document a way to install user-supplied keys in the following standard format from a USB key or optical disk (...)"
As long as the key format is documented and the keystrokes / mouse clicks / whatever to get the BIOS to load them are documented, then that should make everyone happy.
