DRM is not to prevent other files from being readable on the Kindle.

The Kindle DRM wasn't hacked to REMOVE the DRM from Kindle purchases, but added to other books so that they too could be read on the Kindle.

Hacker Igor Skochinsky used DRM to load Mobipocket books onto his Kindle. Using a series of scripts, he's able to convert eBook files to Amazon's AZW format and then add the necessary serial number DRM, specialized per an individual's particular Kindle.

We've known for some time already that Amazon's AZW files are actually Mobi files, but Amazon didn't share Kindle's Mobi PID which would allow one to buy encrypted Mobi books for Kindle.
