Alder Lake BIOS leak: what does this mean for the Framework?

So it looks like Intel Alder Lake BIOS code leaked, may contain vital secrets • The Register … I wonder what this mean for possible efforts to open-source the BIOS, e.g.

Would this make things easier (because reference code is now available)? Or worse (because it’s harder to claim a clean-room implementation)?

I think the leak was already part of the one released for hacking to check for more vulnerabilities, it has already been scrubbed. Intel said it was from a 3rd party vendor.

This still impacts stuff like Boot Guard so I was wondering if Framework would be updating the current BIOS with new keys?

Looking through it, looks to be Lenovo.

I really hope this means someone can find a way to disable Intel ME in the near future using the leaked MSRs.
