John Gruber really nails DRM-speak. DRM proponents will say anything to cover up the fundamental incompatibility between user control of their devices and licensor control of media. Anything that does the licensor's bidding is guaranteed to interfere with the general-purpose computing capabilities of the device. Trying to protect crypto secrets in insecure devices means opaque functionality, lack of interoperability, and restrictions on the device's generality that would undermine innovation and freedom of speech.
