You appear to misunderstand the scope/goals of the EME spec. Defining "an
open and inter-operable DRM ecosystem" is not in scope. The EME abstract
[1] makes this clear, so it is clear that you start your comments based on
a false assumption.

The issue of content key protection is also clearly marked out of scope
[2], so your comments on protection of key secrets are similarly based on a
false assumption.

I'd suggest you carefully reread the abstract and other statements in EME
that clearly delineate the scope of this spec, and reformulate your
comments accordingly.

Glenn
