EFI could be considered a "DRM BIOS" because its control system may give it power over your OS and fully-free BIOS projects would be useless since they would require proprietary binary-only code to run on EFI. Linus Torvals has said it would add more complexity without any real advantages, and he refers to it as "this other Intel brain-damage (the first one being ACPI)"."
