It is clear why the proposal does not specify key and license transferal
formats, but some informative text could avoid confusion.  For instance, if
HTTPS is used and a key is encrypted using some other system then double
encryption is taking place and that isn’t obvious in the proposal.  Suggest
adding informative text in the following places:
1.      In the addkey sequence, step 5.4.1, change “Process key” to something
like “Process key, may involve handler (CDM) specific decryption”.
2.      At appropriate places in the Javascript examples add a comment
indicating the xmlhttp.response may be encrypted in a CDM specific manner.
