I agree, although the point was worth mentioning for others who may not have read "full-scale DRM" to mean encryption based or the most restrictive form of DRM.
As others mention, watermarks are still DRM, they're just a middle of the road DRM.
Have to say though, I often say I'm against DRM in posts when what I actually mean is I'm against the current common form of DRM which is encryption based. So that may be why the question was "obviously" about encryption vs watermarks vs nothing to me. It might not read that way to everyone.
