Same objection I've given every time.  Despite the W3C leadership
signing off on this, it's still grossly inappropriate for us to be
doing this, as it goes directly against the basic principles of the
Open Web we claim to stand for.  All the relevant arguments have
already been made, so I won't re-make them - they simply keep getting
ignored, rather than addressed, so they're just as valid now as they
were when they were first made.

(If anyone feels the urge to claim that this is totally in line with
the Open Web and really *I'm* the one being against the Open Web
because I'm restricting consumer's right to choose to consume broken
media, go for it.  I won't be responding, because it's stupid.)
