The abstract of the spec says "No "DRM" is added to the HTML5 specification,
and only simple clear key decryption is required as a common baseline."

This should better describe how the underlying implementation of a DRM/content
protection system is not included in this spec, not required to implement the
spec, and that the spec mediates access to such a system allowing the page to
communicate with a license service as necessary.
