And the reason I originally said it's not 'DRM' is because DRM is designed to restrict a person's rights in regards to copyrighted material.
Exactly like the OLPC BIOS.
If this is DRM, then setting file permissions on your home folder is DRM also. Implimenting filesystem encryption is DRM also, then.
Neither of those scenarios involve an upstream party using private keys (or other technology) to inhibit your enjoyment of a product that you rightfully own. I don't see how they could be considered DRM.
