This can be solved by the implementation for that scenario.  Implementations 
of DTCP do not necessarily _have_ to connect at the same time, and providing 
hosts is optional by either the initiator or target.

Have they tried to implement either spec for fair comparison?  After coding 
DTCP and reading JEP-65, I'd say they are about the same in difficulty, but 
that is just my opinion.
