Can one of the EME Editors please close issues 288, 304 and 305?  I have added a comment pointing to the below message to each issue.

Subject: Formal objections to Encrypted Media Extensions

The HME WG has recently received several Formal Objections to EME progressing to Proposed Recommendation.

These recent formal objections are listed below:

a) ISSUE-288: "EME is not intended to be an interface to technical protection measures"
Author: Wendy Seltzer

b) ISSUE-304: Turn off EME by default and activate only with express permission from user
Author: Harry Halpin

c) ISSUE-305: Formal objection to Encrypted Media Extensions advancing to Proposed Recommendation
Author:  Ruben Rodriguez

Since these formal objections:

a)       cannot be satisfied without making "substantive changes" [1] to the EME specification or halting work on the specification entirely, and/or

b)      are identical to previous formal objections that the Director has chosen not to sustain, and/or

c)       there is no consensus within the HME WG for the required changes especially this late in the EME specification development,
in my role as HME WG Chair I am ruling that these issues should be closed with no action for EME V1.

Each of these Formal Objections will be added to the summary page of formal objections [1] and will be presented to the Director when he reviews a request to progress EME to Proposed Recommendation status.

FTR I responded with background earlier on the topic of EME formal objections in:
