There have been numerous offers to include DRM support in Moonlight,
Netflix has shown no interest in porting Netflix to it so no DRM
support has been added. EME won't change Netflix's lax attitude
towards the smaller Linux/BSD market.

Not at all. You can refuse to use a third party app.

This kind of DRM is nothing more than an attempt to lock down video
streams. If people are that concerned, they should create streaming
technologies of their own (a la RMTP... RTMP? never remember) which
include encryption as a casual ripper-deterring DRM alternative.
