My speculation about Apple being a possible supporter of this format is based on what Jerry alluded to, the usage of CBC in HLS. HLS v5 with AES-SAMPLE encryption is much closer to CENC than traditional HLS. Having said that  this was just speculation on my part. I have not looked at what the announced Apple CDM is doing yet. I would hope they support one of the two formats EME support today.
