I think you've misunderstood - thats a technical detail that merely
alters the cost to the people who did something improper.

If Red Hat want to ship a kernel that is very very locked down - fine.
It's a business choice and maybe it'll sell to someone. The
implementation is non-offensive in its mechanism for everyone else so
technically I don't care, but the 'quiver before our new masters and lick
their boots' stuff isn't a technical (or sane business) approach so can
we cut the trying to FUD other people into doing what you believe your
new master requires.
