That could be - but I don't think that's what MSFT is aiming for here. I think they're primarily targeting "greymarket" Windows. But maybe you're right...

An update on UEFI secure boot

That's true but we have to be careful that the secure boot infrastructure isn't mis-used, through incompetence or apathy, such that we have to resort to jail-breaking and other potentially illegal activity just to run our own software. This whole discussion started because a naive implementation of the MS Win8 Logo requirements could leave competitive systems on the Desktop out in the cold and MS isn't overflowing with concern about what happens outside their ecosystem.
