What native PinePhone application would you like to see in the near future?
The TV/film industry want (and in most cases, have) control over your device, which is one of the main problems. Therefore Netflix have not "upend"ed anything. lol It's just that the distribution model have changed...

I don't think it is possible to "[do] so on an opt in basis and without compromising the core openness of the project." This is exactly the problem. These sociopaths want unfettered root access and control of millions of devices, just to enforce their private business model. We don't accept this from any other industry, why is the "content" industry special? IMO only because (so far) they have waged a very effective propaganda and legal campaign.

Even if it is technically possible, that does not mean we should do it! Digital Restrictions Management is a bad idea, all the way around, for many different reasons. They have all been outlined at https://www.defectivebydesign.org/, so I won't make all the same points again here.
