I have no idea what that means. I'm sure I could figure it out if I
had to, but it's something I'd rather not have to worry about.
I just want to attribute the authors and distribute derivatives under
the same license as the original. I don't want to worry about whether
or not I'm using a disapproved format. Yes, I think you should be
"allowed to distribute DRM-encumbered versions without a parallel
version". The only anti-DRM clause in CC-BY-SA that I fully support
is giving permission to circumvent.
