I don't have any hopes this new technology will benefit consumer electronics.
For one thing, in one word....Sony.
If we look at consumer electronics over the past...since macrovision, drm and limiting the usefulness of hardware and software has been in many products.
So much so that here in US, having hd recorders of any kind and having them output compliant material...say with blu-ray is AFAIK not a given.
Limiting consumer electronics seems to be the number 1 priority and that main purpose is incorporated in the design of new hardware and software.
