At the risk of being redundant, it seems you are conflating TPMs with
the full TCG stack.  Other than the EK, can you point to any specific
functionality of the 1.1 or 1.2 TPM itself that actually supports your
claim?  Would you mind pointing us at the "MSFT" one of which you
speak?  My experience with the MS realm of TC stacks is admittedly
slimmer than I would like, but those I have seen seem to have come
from the TPM vendor rather than MSFT.

In the context of present standards/hardware/etc, isn't your "interesting
hook" actually a virtual plastic worm that conceals and makes interesting
a fearsome hook that would catch you and kill you?

I find your metaphor inflammatory and designed to elicit emotional
response rather than technical dialogue.  Would you mind eliminating
these elements and try making a technical argument, or are you just
trolling the conversation?  If not, you're fulfilling the precise
stereotype we're talking about: hand waving fearmongering based on
3rd-party information.
