Under the "goals" section there is another line wich worries me.

"The user agent should not select among content decryption and
protection options. The application should make this decision."

I think here "user agent" has a "user" part, so you deny the user to
have knowledge about the method being used to "protect" the content?
If I ever were to use this EME, I'd like to know about binary files
(CDM) being downloaded and executed on my computer.
So this is unacceptable either.
