I've been watching recent releases of Blu-Ray players and most of them just ignore lossless formats like FLAC, WavPack and so on.
They ship with MP3 and some are shipping with AAC support, but FLAC is a dream...

Any logic reason besides contractual ties with proprietary formats?

OK. I wasn't sure if those were hardware driven or not and if Apple locked it out via the firmware or just didn't add the software decoder.
