I have a feeling x86 manufactures would face considerable backlash if they tried to lock down SecureBoot in a manner where it's impossible to disable.

There was "considerable backlash", to say the least, to every little step along the way to the current, ridiculous reality you describe.

No one cared about our objections. The voices of those that care about free general purpose computing are not important to those who make the decisions.

We are frogs and we are being boiled.
