Interesting post, you're great at writing about these hardware/BIOS related things.

You brought up a point relating to trusting your firmware. Since it's probably proprietary, and since it's not possible to trust proprietary stuff, maybe you can get in on the coreboot team and give the world a Free Software BIOS? Wouldn't that be awesome?

The bonus is that you wouldn't have to fight with arbitrary binary code, and you could implement awesome things!
