There is a good reason for that.  Now that uefi is implemented, the book
drive is a fully operating OS in its own right.  Now I think that is
stupid, but that is the facts.  Machines can not be secured without
secure boot because open access to physical hardware means access to a
fully operating system in the book loader.  It essentially is running a
watered down version of the jave virtual machine.
