Okay, back in the fray: https://github.com/w3c/encrypted-media/issues/379#issuecomment-295532877 (Cory's going on a book tour, so I'm EFF's new W3C rep for the next few weeks).
I really do not like that there's a confidentiality agreement for W3C members. There's a bunch of stuff that I'd like to talk about, but we are restricted from saying: I'm sure the same is true for the pro-DRM camp at the W3C. It makes some parts of this debate far too mysterious for outsiders to follow.
@Edent probably not 🙁 a) we don't have much money for travel -- I burned airmiles going to Japan for an AC a few years ago. and b) China doesn't like us very much at the moment. I don't think it's bad enough that I wouldn't get a visa, but it's enough to make me tend to go for another AC meet if I can. And living out of a locked-down Chromebook is a pain.
