Eff finds hidden account info in new DRM-free iTunes track

Ars Technia and TUAW had reported that apple is hidding account info in the new iTunes track and when EFF tried to find out and compared two files of the same track downloaded with different accounts they found a difference of about 360k of data. This data could be possibly containing hidden personal information about the user. I wonder what will apple do with such information since this information is easily locatable and spoofable in the files and might not be effective against music pirates.
