I'm actually curious as to why this is apparently crucial; I haven't seen a
good explanation of this.  It seems to be a better formulation (applies to
cases where technology effectively restricts rights by accident, and to
cases where it was intended to restrict rights but doesn't), but I'm not
sure why it's crucial.
