They want everyone to be ready for the deluge of HoloLens porn that will be flooding the market next year. Money is to be made only if everyone has a HoloLens setup. It only works on Windows 10. It'll get big once your favorite "adult star" is in the room with you, as long as you keep your HoloLens on. This is Hypnotoad level stuff. Maybe.

I don't think many politicians would bother to use anything this secure as their records would be kept and likely accessible after a court order. Congress doesn't believe it needs to work this hard. They are above the law, exempt really, in many ways. Businesses with valuable trade secrets are a great target market for this technology.

ELI5: This is like adding the length of your hair to your height. It's always been there, but you just decided that it's important enough to add it to your reported height. Are you taller? Nothing really changed. The Milky Way is the same size it was before. We just decided that some extra stuff that's always been there should be include due to it's observed behavior. We do not know nothing. We are always learning.

Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.
