"Standard" is just a label you give to a proposal. Right now all effort has been focussed on preventing to stick that label on EME. I think that effort could have been spent better.
You can for example make browser vendors adopt only DRM plugins that charge money for each visit, that will drive away all the little websites and makes every website owner think twice before they put their video under EME DRM. Really the worst that can happen now is that every video website on the web starts putting all their video into this EME DRM. This is what the actual war is about.
However, you can't introduce such a payment barrier overnight, as there is still flash. Users must uninstall flash in large numbers, and once browsers don't offer the flash plugin any more, you can make websites pay. So first step, petition people you know to uninstall flash, and all other plugins, maybe uninstall it yourself, and then as second step petition website owners which require flash to drop that requirement. Petitioning while you still have flash enabled may be more comfortable, but it sort of misses the point.
