It also prevents us to show there are ways to convert files to other formats (since we don't know if the conversion is possible) ...

It also almost devalues the non-DRM publishers "courageous" choice to do without.

So, for me, personally, from a technical point of view, I don't care any more than you do. But when I look at it from a more general point of view, it bothers me quite as much as DRMs...
