ddorwin has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/encrypted-media:

== Consider reasons other than Distinctive Identifier in the steps of 
the Consent Status algorithm ==
PR #66 adds a "Get Distinctive Identifier Consent Status" algorithm 
that determines whether user consent is necessary. There are two areas
 for improvement:

1. The algorithm takes an <var>accumulated configuration</var> but 
doesn't use it.
2. The step being refactored contains a note that "Implementations MAY
 require consent for other reasons, such as the security properties of
 the CDM implementation." This could be made into a step that would 
fit better in the algorithm ([original 
suggestion](https://github.com/mwatson2/encrypted-media/commit/0d33734864311d6c61ad0f1af3f2213fd0611e39#commitcomment-13354947)).

Addressing (2) may use <var>accumulated configuration</var>.

I'll work on this after #66 is merged.
