It enables validation in shim, as the manual page says - it's the
opposite of disable-validation.

It's hardly mokutil's job to explain mokmanager's inner workings,
but as I'm surely aware you know, any action needs to be confirmed
at boot by a password - or specific characters thereof (sigh).

It's a very specific tool to control MokManager that's not really
suitable for end users, but for distro developers building integration
so I think both things are kind of non-issues.
