Encrypted white balance

As PhotoshopNews (pointed by Slashdot) states, new Photoshop will not have support of white balance in raw format used by some Nixon photo cameras, because it's encrypted. The encryption doesn't protect anything, in fact, because keys are kept in the device. But the person who uses reverse-engineering to get the format details may be sued under (American) DMCA.

Of course, there's solution. No white balance, you need to adjust it yourself. I'm just wondering why to encrypt it...
