Ok. Quite honestly, I could hardly believe that you were ever using
laptops running blobs ;)  Still, I don't get the rationale in using a
clean laptop at home, and another one when you are away, just because
you are away.  Do you mean that the purpose is to use two different
HDs, one on the laptop which stays and the other, with no important
data, on the laptop which goes?

As for the law that says I can have more that 1 libreboot system, I
think I will put it into practice soon ;)

Already done.  But what if someone spies on me typing my passphrase,
even if it is on my second dummy libreboot system?
