Because in my opinion TPMs are part of the general problem that needs to
be solved, not a separate issue. TPMs prevent sharing *physically*
(well, electronically), where copyright only prevents it legally. TPMs
break SA most noticeably but they also break the free sharing of
unmodified versions that is the basic freedom that all CC licenses give
you. It does not make sense to treat TPMs separately any more than it
would make sense to divide the CC licenses up into modules that tackle
successive copyright acts.
