This has already been done for the VID:PID.

* Major changes in Gnuk 1.2.8

   Released 2018-01-23, by NIIBE Yutaka

** No inclusion of VID:PID in gnuk.elf

Distribution of binary image with VID:PID would violate vendor ID
agreement to USB Forum.  Now, we have new file named gnuk-vidpid.elf
for flashing.  The file gnuk.elf can be used to generate
gnuk-vidpid.elf and we can check if it is reproducible or not.

* Major changes in Gnuk 1.2.10

   Released 2018-05-10, by NIIBE Yutaka

** No inclusion of VID:PID in gnuk-no-vidpid.elf
Now, we have new file named gnuk-no-vidpid.elf with no VID:PID.  The
file gnuk.elf has the VID:PID, like version 1.2.7 or older.
