This is a Formal Objection against the Working Group Decision to publish
Encrypted Media Extensions specification as a First Public Working Draft
(FPWD).

EME is not compatible with the Open Web and can not be made compatible
with it.

For simplicity I refer to the Formal Objection raised by the EFF
regarding the HTML WG Draft Charter:
https://www.eff.org/pages/drm/w3c-formal-objection-html-wg

In addition to that I refer to these two issues:

EME does not allow independent implementation, excluding open source
implementations.
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20967

That issue was "resolved" by one of the authors of EME as an alleged
duplicate of another issue:

EME should do more to encourage/ensure CDM-level interop

Cheers,
Andreas
