Framing GeoDRM

Last "International Talk Like a Pirate Day" I wrote and tore up several lackluster posts about GeoDRM. None of them had the "Arr" I was searching for. I'd received emails offline from an OGC person who was trying to convince me that it's too early to criticize GeoDRM; that it is just a reference model, reference models can't be implemented, that it has nothing to do with implementations. This is a person I know, respect, and like, and I regret to say that I wasn't convinced. Now is the critical framing stage of the GeoDRM debate. I'm opposed to heavy-handed technological enforcement of copyright, and I'm not going to sit on my hands while the debate is framed in favor of enforcement.
