I think it is misleading to use words like "premium content" without
also mentioning DRM. Otherwise please only talk about "content".

Anyway, an explicit clarification should be added that enabling DRM is
not within the scope of the Working Group as it is incompatible with the
"Open Web Platform" (at least if one is not using Newspeak).

Cheers,
Andreas
