Open or Closed?

It seems that the Apple music store is now encrypting their XML files. I’ve confirmed that it is indeed doing so and wonder what this means in terms of changes to the XML files (more info on the content of those XMLs up until yesterday can be found in a previous entry. If anyone out there knows why Apple is now encrypting what looked like an open standard, please drop me a note (I’ve noticed that a few readers are coming in from and would be interested in knowing what the “party line” is on this).

This is a bit worrisome as it seems to close up more information on the Apple store. Does that mean that Apple is seeing its seeing as a closed one? If that’s the case, it’s a real shame.
