Ian has notified about this proposal at least three times:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Mar/0065.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Mar/0109.html
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Mar/0066.html

There has been discussion in thread "Encrypting content stored on  
untrusted CDNs" and some other threads. The feature was added in response  
to use cases outlined by Mark Watson and comments by Charles Pritchard and  
me, so the group has been involved.

Perhaps those e-mails could easily be overlooked in the heat of the DRM  
discussion, but I think it's unfair to say that Ian didn't notify the  
group or added this feature without discussion.
