David wrote: "I'd really appreciate it if myths like this were not propagated.  HTML5 says nothing at all about the format of embedded media resources.  If the platform supports robust content protection, they are as playable as anything else."

The spec should be clarified to not imply that content protection can't be embedded using existing mechanisms that the page doesn't need to be aware of.
