As discussed in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2014Oct/0106.html,
some DRM implementations---for Silverlight, at least---bring along
semi-permanent client IDs.

It would be ideal if we required that clearing ones cookies, history, etc. also
cleared any such identifiers. I am unsure this is possible for robustness
reasons, and as such filed bug #27165 to explore mitigating strategies, but if
there is even a chance of requiring they be clearable that would be much
better, and would love to have that discussion in this bug.
