It doesn't. You can sign boot loader using your own key. But then you
need to store this key in UEFI firmware.

This is actually what I'm suggesting – that we should create an Arch
Linux bootloader signing key that will be used for signing boot stuff.
Users would have to store this key in their UEFI prior installing Arch
