I have asked Philippe to attend next week’s Media TF meeting to discuss this matter.  He may also have time to respond via email before the meeting.

All,

My suggestion on the call today was that this work could be divided into two parts:

Phase I: Further develop the "clear key" protocol to support the features we believe should be standardized
Phase ||: Define security wrapping for the "clear key" protocol that would enable its use as a real DRM protocol

I wonder if Phase I might be considered in scope ? This would enable us to make progress on that in advance of the re-chartering or new group creation needed to work on Phase ||. The answer to this question depends on the reasons that the team judged the overall task out-of-scope.

At the Media Task Force F2F I was asked to check to see if Joe’s proposed work on a generic license request/response protocol is in the scope of the Task Force and/or the HTML WG charter [1]:
https://github.com/steelejoe/eme-generic-protocol


I have discussed with the W3C Team and they are of the opinion this work is NOT currently in scope of the HTML WG.  The next step therefore is to discuss adding this item to a revised charter which is required since the current charter expires on June 30.  I am working on this with the W3C Team.
