I'm referring to accommodating non-CENC MP4 encryption. See
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17673#c6 onwards. I'm
not trying to pick on Apple specifically. I'm just pointing out that a
change that catered to one vendor doing things differently was treated
with the general attitude of "How do we accommodate this?" instead of
the attitude "Should they really be needing this accommodation and
what are the consequences?", so in that light, the treatment my
request to add an enum item is getting is rather different.

That said, I'm happy with the privacy aspects of EME getting
attention. (Though whether the attention translates to privacy safe
guards in implementations matters more then whether the issues are
noted somewhere.)
