I believe that any effective DRM mechanism will be invasive on the
whole design of the operating system, for natural reasons.

Anyway, I agree that there does not seem to be a technical measure
against this technology.  At least, I am unaware of such a measure,
and in fact I am not even looking for it.  I am not interested in the
question if there is one and how it would look like.

Any effective protection against it would appropriately come from a
legal restriction, ie GPL v3 for example (but there are other cases
where people have excluded DRM applications by choice of license).
