There's nothing stopping a container/codec with DRM from being used  
right now. I presume Saf 3.1/OS X plays FairPlay encrypted files right  
now. The spec can never require any DRM encrypted format to be used,  
as that would mean the DRM format being openly documented, making it  
entirely useless.
