How can a firmware spec define the documentation that a system vendor includes?
It could work something like this: A disinterested third party owns the trademark to "UEFI" or "Secure Boot" or whatever, and the spec can say that a system vendor cannot claim compliance unless it provides some documented way (that doesn't require permission from a particular vendor) to load user-supplied keys in a standard format.
Plenty of specs leave the details up to the specific implementation but still say that there must be some documented way to do something to claim compliance.
