Technically, half of the work is already done thanks to coreboot :

But since reflashing is 
1) risky
and 
2) either expensive ( need specific hardware )
or 
2) still need to sign the system to reflash 
( as explained on http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/12745.html )

that's not a solution to the problem "we want to have Fedora working on
hardware that will be soon on the market".

But people who think that's a good idea could start a kickstarter
campaign, and get funds to produce the so-called motherboards.
( and if you do not get enough support at the first step, i doubt the
others steps would have been successful ).

Or alternatively, just convince everybody to buy from a supplier who
committed to not ship secureboot enabled
