Suppose you replaced secure boot with physical keys,

You know, I would be happy to do this! Having the computer supplied with a physical lock that electrically prevents replacing the boot loader, unless the owner turns a key would keep the control with the owner of the machine!

Indeed. "turn this key to automatically certify the next thing that boots" would be fine -- and I strongly suspect that if that was the mechanism, people *wouldn't* accept machines that where sold without keys, and for which MS and others hold keys, but where the owner does NOT get keys.
