I haven't seen such a system myself yet, but when I look at the UEFI
specs, it doesn't sound like it will be a simple "Secure Boot =>
enable/disable" option.  Secure Boot operates in setup mode and user
mode, enrolling a key automatically jumps from setup to user mode, you
can only enroll keys in setup mode, and deleting all keys automatically
goes to setup mode.  Will it stay in setup mode if you don't delete all
keys (which then will break Win8 dual-booting, if Win8 requires Secure
Boot enabled)?  Is that going to by firmware vendor or system vendor
dependent?

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
