If the bootloader is locked to only accept signed kernels would it be possible to forge the signature? I have never thought about the development before so sorry if this seems stupid.

One more stupid idea from me:
We have some guys who have unlocked bootloaders , those who got the defy repaired from service stations and now have a SE OMAP. Can those guys compile a kernel which suits our need and we can just flash the kernel like we go a CM7 or CM9 (froyo or GB) from recovery?

Its just a thought.... If we just need kernel, why not go this route?

even if they can compile a kernel, we would not be able to flash it on locked one.

Thanks, could we make a custom sbf and use that as a base for cm9?
