Indeed, there is a lot of opinions everywhere the DRM issue is raised.

But the question shouldn't be WHY do it; it should be WHERE to do it.

Please, stop this thread! DRM is not something that should *first* be spec'ed,
*then* implemented: as Mark Pilgrim says, "those that ship are those that win".

If you want DRM, go here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/, and there:
https://bugs.webkit.org/, and ask for implementations in development builds.
THERE will the real discussion be. Once experimentations come to a working
implementation, we won't even need to spec it, because IE will be eager to
follow.

Don't ask CIA agents to use RDFa in their Echelon databases. They're not
supposed to do database engineering, and they don't care about RDFa, much like
Hixie doesn't care about DRM. If you want it to happen, join the NSA
engineering team and do it.
