           Summary: The extension should not require special (handcuffed)
                    hardware.

           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux

On the "Goals" section. Third line reads like this:

"Support a range of content security models, including software and
hardware-based models"

If I understand it well, it says some CDM may require specific
hardware (i.e. a crippled graphics card).
I find this to be unbearable. Seriously do you pretend to approve a
standard which would lead to
remove users freedom to general purpose computing?
