The only flaw in your logic I can find is that in the DRM world, the
owner of your computer will be Micky Mouse, and then there won't be
any conflict anymore according to your own definition.

One more thing: When I said exploring, I really meant exploring, not
making decisions.  Too early for that.  Beside, it's your fault in the
first place that the user's freedom to do authentication came up ;)
