What do you mean when you talk about targeting DRM?

Saying "We'll check for DRM" is like promising that there will be
flying cars in 2050. What's a flying car? Isn't the ability to fly
outside the scope of a car? If not, can a plane be considered a car?

What's a DRM, exactly? What is it supposed to do and how is it supposed to work?

Let's keep in mind that we face patent issues if we answer this wrong.

Furthermore, I wonder why Ring 0 targets the default browsers of
Android and iOS specifically? This behaviour feels like the olden days
of IE-only. We should target features for their orthogonality, not for
their support in browsers.
