Another thought. As the DRM clause is currently written, it prohibits
encumbered distribution (e.g. RealMedia). If the DRM clause is rewritten so
that you must provide an unencumbered version alongside every encumbered
version, it would instead mean that, for instance, if you provided RealMedia
you would *also* have to provide Ogg.
This might be an easier sell to the proprietary-format shops: "You don't have
to drop RealMedia, you just have to add this extra format. Which is free."
This is probably a better way of getting a foot in the door, anyway.
