That correlation is loose at best.  Some posit that firewire capture =
copy freely, but they are governed by different policies entirely on
the headend and while this would be generally good policy, my
experience from having worked in a headend is that making this kind of
logical leap is bound to be wrong in real-life scenarios.  Hopefully
SD will produce usable info regarding what to expect on a per-locale
