The Microsoft Proton Processor (designed by Microsoft, programmed by Microsoft) being embedded into AMD APU\CPU's runs whatever Microsoft decide to put in that closed source firmware blob.

For example...

It already uniquely identifies the CPU (the system, and YOU) to Microsoft.
It could easily be used to enforce UEFI boot and\or SystemD only.

If you don't see an issue with this....
