mavgit has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/encrypted-media:

== Can EME support link protection, such as DTCP-IP? ==
Link protection, such as DTCP-IP, is used widely and required by 
several specifications for delivery of video in the home network. Link
 protection can pass any format of video. Unlike other content 
protection systems, link protection negotiates a protected path 
between two endpoints, so it would never request a key from the 
application.

It seems that a link protection system like DTCP-IP could be treated 
like any other key system, but it would never request a key from the 
application. The benefit of using EME is that EME allows the media 
format and the content protection technology to be specified 
separately. 

So, can DTCP-IP, for example, be supported by the current EME API or 
would changes be required?
