[PATCH] wayland-protocols: Add content-protection protocol

Thanks for your patch. However, I don't think it belongs to wayland-protocols.
wayland-protocols isn't designed for all common Wayland protocols. For instance,
the IVI shell isn't there, and has a similar use-case (although not limited to
closed systems). Also some other protocols like layer-shell have been rejected.

I think a Weston patch in protocols/ would be better suited. This would allow
protocol consumers to share the protocol while not including it in a repository
where it won't be used because a large majority of wayland-protocols users don't
have closed systems.

That said, wayland-protocols' scope is ill-defined, so it's not like it's easy
to decide whether it belongs here or not.
