I have no problem with proprietary. There are advantages as well as disadvantages. If you prefer not to use proprietary, then buy only products which don't use proprietary. If there are enough people who want to do that, there will be vendors aplenty to sell you products. If not, then you're in a minority too small to be worth anyone's business.
Did you prefer BluRay or HD-DVD?
Don't depend on other people to solve your problems for you, and in particular don't count on Government to force everyone to do what you think they should. If enough people like a solution, there will be no reason for government to impose it, and if they don't then it is unconscionable for government to impose it. Pretty simple, really.
