Um, no.  EOTC is not an earlier version of EOTL.  EOTL1.1 is
completely independent; it currently refers interested parties to the
EOTC spec to give some historical basis for the padding sections.

IE does not render EOTL files, it renders EOTC files.  The EOTL format
is just created in such a way that (nonconformant) legacy IEs
interpret them in such a way.  Future IEs, and other browsers, will
correctly distinguish between the two formats.

You also haven't addressed just what rights are being managed by
ensuring that a file is formatted correctly before attempting to
render it.
