UMMS -- and by extension MeeGo TV and Tizen TV -- is designed for use in real products for use by real people. The spiritual ancestor of UMMS is being deployed in a number of set-top boxes right now.
Anyway, UMMS's DRM support mainly involves hitting the right hardware registers so that the hardware decoders kick in.

Other people seem to have no problem doing these things (DRM, DVD) with existing frameworks (in a commercial context, conforming to the various licenses etc.).

As I said earlier, the design is mostly based on real world legal and technical concerns for the target use-case (dvb, dvd, bluray, dolby) that no other projects cope with.
