For me the purpose/level of QMMS sounds very similar to one of QtMultimediaKit,
both provide an API for a defined set of cases and provide the integartion with qt graphics systems (QWidgets/QGrpahicsView/QML/SceneGraph).
Both are a thin portable API layers on top of existing frameworks with a similar pros and cons of such solution.

As I understand for the DRM case the playback should be done in a separate "protected" process,
an application should not be able to touch any data in the pipeline.
Probably it can be done transparently inside of playbin2 while keeping API/behavior the same, but it may be not trivial.
