Do we really want to relive the DTCP disaster again? Ever since that
backlash, I'm afraid to implement anything that doesn't say Draft.

Has the Council opinion changed? If so, I wasn't aware of it. Real
experience is apparently overrated. Time for everyone to go read some mail
about File Transfer in late 2002.
And Tkabber _still_ does DTCP based File Transfer instead of Bytestreams. Yay

jep-secure doesn't even have a JEP number yet, hence the name. It's still
stuck in the council/jep-editor void (for 3 months now). Surely an
implementation is not expected.
