So maybe OEM vendors should add *MECHANICAL* switch for secure boot?
"If You want to install non-signed software on this PC, You have to switch

Easiest solution for secure boot problem? Additionally, mechanical switch
needs physical access to PC, so no malware and virusware ;) can change that
setting during working in secure mode.
