"In theory AACS already provides that. Disks have unique Volume ID. Except it would require the player to be connected to the interwebs to receive revocation. And CSS has been broken anyway."

They uses a proprietary system, and IIRC certain 4k discs REQUIRE Internet access and say so on the case (the ones that don't, they don't care about too much). Combine this with an industry-standard secure protocol and the odds are they won't break it this time (and to be fair, they've learned, most consoles from the seventh gen on have been very hack-resistant) since breaking those algorithms have more serious implications.
