[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#851917: Should go in contrib

Package: chromium-widevine
Severity: normal

chromium-widevine exists solely to download and use the proprietary
Widevine modules, so it should go in contrib.

Alternatively, you could include such support within the main chromium
package; as an incidental function of that package, it wouldn't require
the whole package to go to contrib, any more than Firefox's ability to
download and run proprietary bits does.
