GPLv3

Firstly, we'd need a non-GPL bootloader. Grub 2 is released under the GPLv3, which explicitly requires that we provide the signing keys.

No, it says this:

“Installation Information” for a User Product means any methods, procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from a modified version of its Corresponding Source

It would suffice to provide instructions that say, "install a signed version of grub, and use that to add your own keys to the whitelist".
