What my problem is, is that I work with Keynote often - designing presentations for people.
These people need the ability to click and have motion states within slides. Like a list appearing a click at a time, having photo's and info move in while other info moves out etc...
Right now, the ONLY way for them to obtain this control is to give them the actual keynote file. Once they have that, they are free to make all the changes they want forever, updating the presentation endlessly based on my customized framework and templates. They can directly copy info out of the source keynote file (like photo's or art) and import it into Photoshop etc...
There is zero way to protect the source content without taking away control of the presentation. Saving as a quicktime file does not work and the quality is very poor, unless I want to make an 8 terabyte movie file for them that can be projected at their size requirements (which won't work). Besides, the motion states in Quicktime just don't work within a slide, only slide transitions. They are choppy and just crap.
What Keynote needs... and people have been asking for since day 1 - is a packaged player. So you don't have to give your source file to whoever. Powerpoint has the .ppt stand alone player that still allowes presentation control, and also protects the content.
Even if Apple just added a password 'lock' to the file that didn't allow people to make changes or copy content out of it... would be HUGE.
