As Bill said – it’s the move towards ad-hoc/P2P distribution – both online as well as off – that puts the onus on the UA/RS.

How about if the onus of keeping something locked is on the entity desiring it to be so, and not encoding that capability into the medium and making extra work for UA/RS to track user additions/modification?

That’s how it is with Kindle et al now. They should continue doing it that way.

That is not at all how it is with PDF now. We can't presume a central server/service and need to keep in mind use cases for ad hoc (P2P) document distribution (as well as the re-decentralized Web).
