Discussion without the full information is frustrating for all parties.

Philip,

Just on this one point, I doubt that anyone has a 'CDM intended for production' just yet, since we are right at the beginning of the discussion of the proposal. I also doubt that anyone is witholding information.

Of course it will help a lot if we get as much information as possible about product plans or just general ideas from the content protection vendors. As the work progresses, I hope we'll get this. I'll definitely be encouraging them to do that.
