This is somewhat belated, but: Thank you Joe!

The TPVp is still not ideal from my perspective, but it is now certainly 
something I think an open source community can work with.

I still wish it would not force viewers to enforce DRM, specifically in cases 
where the user has an appropriate license from the creator that supersedes the 
DRM. But I guess this is pretty much a given when a user chooses to create 
their content in a grid that is very much DRM-centric. Hopefully the DRM will 
be extended soon to include an "export ok" flag, now that the TPVp made it a 
critical thing.

Anyway, thanks for listening!
