|How DisplayPort Differs from HDMI|
HDMI is a great consumer electronics interface, but VESA does not feel it is the best solution for PCs as a monitor interface. A somewhat limited performance is available in terms of resolution and color depth for PC monitors (see comparison chart for exactly how this might impact future displays). HDMI is designed to be a premium A/V interface, rather than as a broadly available general purpose display interface. The HDMI specification is not geared to unifying internal and external display connections; its primary focus is consumer electronics.

I can see where, if DisplayPort were to become the defacto standard for PCs, many television manufacturers might include one on their products as a convenience feature.
|DPCP (DisplayPort Content Protection)|
DPCP provides AES type high speed 128-bit content encryption with secure modern ciphers. It also features full authentication and session key establishment (each encryption session is independent). There is an independent revocation system that can defeat "cloning" attacks and can also work within a standard SRM-based system. DPCP has standard license features including robustness rules and compliance rules.

Actually displayport is geared toward all displays including plasma,lcd etc but is meant to interconnect them from outside as well as inside on the individual basis. HDMi is only limited to tv sets and is proprietary so manufacturers will be moving to displayport soon. Read more here http://www.vesa.org/
