I'm not convinced that binary APIs in User Agents between their implementation
of the Encrypted Media API and their underlying approach to CDMs should be the
focus of the W3C. This is like suggesting that NPAPI should be specified as
part of the <object> element specification. Some browsers choose to implement
using a different API but that shouldn't affect conformance. If people want to
discuss this here it should be part of a separate document.
