Drawing comparisons with TLS is a distraction and everyone here should
already know that it is. Implying that the situation is equivalent is
completely counterproductive.

TLS terminates in the networking stack in such a way that the browser
is trusted with the decrypted content. EME is designed to account for
cases where the browser is treated as untrusted to handle decrypted
content.
