You ask the chairs to be tolerant, but then condescend by claiming that if
the W3C "support[s] DRM", then the W3C "no longer matter[s]".

We are extending them the courtesy of helping them understand the issues.

So, your contribution to this thread is merely to help educate the W3C?
Rather patronizing aren't you.
