Originally they wanted to wait until the majority of distros have the version of nss that allows their anti-piracy stuff to work .. and maybe they've just set a date for the "turn on".

Yep!  According to what I've read, in the dev mailing lists...

The Canonical devs did everything Netflix devs requested, in both Chrome and Chromium.

Now, it's in Netflix' court.   :-\

I was just rereading the thread...

That's great news. If both 14.10 and 14.02 have a recent (> 3.16.2) version of NSS, I can make a case here to lift the User-Agent filtering which will make Netflix HTML5 play in Chrome turnkey with no hacks required. So please let me know when you get around to it.

And, most recently...

Looks good here. I confirmed that both 12.04 and 14.04 received the NSS update today and both play in Chrome M37 (stable) with just the UA hack. Thanks for the quick turn around! The ball is in our court now regarding the UA filter.

Evidently, that's what the Netflix devs are doing, right now -- making their case to the Netflix muckity-mucks.  ;)
