If EU wants that other media players should run in Windows,
perhaps EU would look bad the DVD-Audio spec as well.

Whoever designed the spec, it was stupid not to look around for
non-patented/non-proprietary lossless format as an alternative.

We just have to work out the suitable modification/extension to
the spec. How vdix/dvix format ended up to be a standard in DVD
video players? How mp3-discs in CD player? And how the various
copycontrol systems on CDs?
