Compared to the hundreds of millions of general purpose PCs available  
in the rest of the world alone, yes it is.

And the PSP is not positioned as a media player. Sony's mistake, but  
there you are. The better example is the iPod, which can be handled  
more effectively by not allowing DRM distribution but giving a  
special exception for rendering works inaccessible on devices they  
cannot be removed on (an "iPod exception").

That would be more "pragmatic"...
