I agree, much of the problem will be that future platforms will require a key pre-loaded before you can install a new OS or boot-loader.

Shouldn't we be getting concerned about the root signing authority? I would be very surprised if getting a key isn't restricted to either just M$ or open to anyone who will pay $MuchoDosh. In either case this new authority is what we have to work around...
