IME is separate from UEFI.  Correct?  

IME provides another way that an external party might access a machine 
for a purpose unwanted by the machine owner.

UEFI imposes another layer of complexity not intrisic to the user 
objective but requiring attention for the machine to serve a purpose.

In the Oberon philosophy, neither of those is desirable.
