The only time I think it would be appropriate may be for things that
wouldn't work under the Secure Boot kernel.  Somebody said that some
proprietary modules might be restricted (I'm not sure if that's the case
or not or which might be affected).  If for example a video driver
kernel module wouldn't load, it might be nice for the setup utility for
the driver for it to note that Secure Boot needs to be disabled.
