OK, let's say it like that : some people who install wireshark/nessus/whatever use it to crack into systems, so people should be forbidden to get those programs...

That's the same reasoning.

Implementing UEFI Secure Boot in Fedora

Nobody's forbidding anyone from running anything. It's a matter of default policy. The default policy being imposed here is that only signed code should be able to directly influence hardware behaviour. Signing a bootloader that then executes unsigned code is a pretty obvious circumvention of that policy.
