True -- but I was not making a general statement. I was referring specifically to the use cases I outlined. In each of those use cases I specifically said that the application does not have prior knowledge of the license server.

I assume that most applications be designed by service providers for their exclusive use and will not run into these issues.

The common thread to these use cases is that the application has no idea what license server will be communicated with prior to getting the key message from the CDM.

Clearly this is not true as a general statement. Many applications will be designed by service providers with either explicit knowledge of the license server or with other service provider specific mechanisms for determining this information.
