Well, EME - the DRM sandboxing framework which TimBL endorse, _is_ 
Debian worthy: See e.g. https://bugs.debian.org/837091

EME is not endorsed by FSF, however: See e.g. 
which includes this passage:

> For instance, a free system distribution must not contain browsers

Speaking of which: It seems to me that recent builds of GNUzilla IceCat 
come with EME support too, which I suspect it unintended. If someone 
reading this is using GNUzilla IceCat, please test the DRM demos at 
<https://demo.castlabs.com/> - if a popup appears suggesting to download 
a DRM plugin then EME is supported on that browser too.
