When there were objections to the first FPWD CfC for EME the Chairs issued a email about the lack of consensus:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2013Feb/0123.html
that requested:

"Examining the objections related to the question as to whether the
candidate FPWD contains enough information to be implemented
interoperably, the chairs found that much of the input on this has
lacked specifics, so at this time we are putting out a call for clear
and specific bug reports to be filed against the Encrypted Media
Extensions component in bugzilla[1] by February 15th.  Once that is
complete, we will seek an recommendation by the EME editors on how to
proceed with these bugs."

At several Feb EME Media TF meetings we processed the bugs that were filed after the FPWD CfC and before Feb 15.  I have recorded below how the Editors and TF processed these bugs and notes there current status.  I am hoping that this record will help us process this at the current HTML WG F2F meeting.
