I assumed your statement that Charles's proposal doesn't address "virtually any" of the problems raised you were referring to technical issues. I have followed this discussion closely, and IMO most of comments from the people you list have been more ideological than technical.

It would be useful to understand the strictly engineering issues you see with the encrypted media proposal.
