I agree with that and I am now convinced that the W3C management is
determined to ignore the fundamental objections to EME which were raised
and that it likely will continue on that path in the future.

I no longer trust that this discussion can be resolved within W3C in an
appropriate manner - at least not without pressure from the outside.

It therefore seems to be necessary to make the Open Source communities
aware of this situation. This includes organisations like the FSF and
the OSI and the communities around the major Linux distributions. But I
think it also makes sense to inform other stakeholder organisations such
as the EFF.

I myself will not waste more time on this discussion here as long as the
outcome is predetermined and independent of the arguments which were and
are raised.

Cheers,
Andreas
