I agree that "Media Task Force" is not appropriate. But "Encrypted Media
Task Force" also is not appropriate for the same reason.

The Task Force (if it is created at all) should be named in a way which
does not hide the real intentions. Two suggestions:
- Content Protection Task Force
- DRM Task Force

One could think of even more appropriate names, but they certainly would
have no chance of adoption, for example:
- Protecting Content from Users Task Force
- Broken By Design Task Force

Cheers,
Andreas
