The way I understand it, Vista has some "features" that make getting a simple memory dump (as an example) not as easy as it is in XP.
The moment it becomes clear (for AACS LA and its licensees) that either PowerDVD or WinDVD will leak the key the moment it is updated (essentially a WinXP issue, not the player's), the XP versions of the players won't get new keys, only Vista as a playback platform will be allowed.
Hell will most probably break lose, but I think this can happen.
Or PC playback will be banned alltogether (less likely).
Or the optical hidef formats as we know it today will die.
