Open Standards?

So, while EME is an "Open Standard", it's just an API. What I never see discussed is the possible proliferation of different Content Decryption Modules that don't have to be Open, but only need to communication using the Open API with the browser. How many of these are going to be cross platform, or are we going to see CDMs that are only available on Windows 10 particular version with some hardware dependency as well?
