you're right for some boards, but not all boards.

Our goal for some platforms is to have just the SEC and PEI as delivered
from the chipset vendor, and then DXEs compiled from source, then
linuxboot. We'd like to remove the firmware vendor and board manufacturer
from the trust equation -- and, interestingly, many board vendors we talk
to also want that very same thing.

We're not there yet, but getting closer all the time. And it's moving fast.
