In IBM's machines the TPM is on a card that can be removed; maybe we
should encourage other manufacturers to do this. (This solves the "how
do you know if it's *really* turned off?" problem.)

My understanding is that keys stored in the TPM can be deleted; I don't
know if this applies to the all-important endorsement key.
