‘SC Info’ Folder Change with iTunes 7

iTunes 4, 5, and 6 all required an "SC Info" folder in /Users/Shared to work with iTunes and the DRM. I looked today while running repairPermissions from the command line and the contents of the folder have changed.

-rw-rw-rw-   1 iacas  wheel     852 Sep 12 14:42 SC Info.sidb
-rw-rw-rw-   1 iacas  wheel  200356 Sep 13 07:31 SC Info.sidd

Previously, the folder contained only "SC Info.sidb." Now my "SC Info" folder contains "SC Info.sidd" as well. What do they do? How is this secure? Questions still remain.

I didn't expect to be given this warning in repairPermissions, but I was, and it is simply:

[11:40am root@Hamlet:~] # /usr/sbin/diskutil repairPermissions /
Started verify/repair permissions on disk disk1s3 Rack
Determining correct file permissions.
parent directory ./Users/Shared/SC Info does not exist
