The "Netflix" vs. the "Korean" use-cases

Netflix (if I got it right...) currently relies on pre-provisioned keys.  To make these keys usable with the WebCrypto API, Nextflix could pre-provision keys using a [presumably system-dependent] method that makes keys appear (to the WebCrypto API) as they actually were provisioned on-line, using the WebCrypto API.

I.e. Netflix would be hooking into the same-origin (*.netflix.com) security-model.

What I don't understand is how this fairly straight-forward scheme could be translated to already issued "unbound" keys like those used by the 25 million certificate-holders in Korea, do you?
