Comment(by greenfeld):

 I think a simpler question is what needs to be tested (and written up as a
 testcase per Quozl) to verify this ticket?

 I do not know much about the low-level security architecture besides:
   1. There is a hardware write lock of some sort.
   2. On 1.75, the EC and OFW EEPROMs are separated.
   3. I can downgrade OFW and/or the EC of a locked XO using a developer
 key to force said XO to process a signed update to the same on the next
