No, I think what has so far been the binary-1-NONUS CD is going to
become the binary-1 CD - no special US version. "non-US" ==
"cryptographic code" according to policy 2.1.5:

    Some programs with cryptographic program code need to be stored on
    the non-US server because of United States export restrictions. 
    Such programs must be distributed in the appropriate non-US
    section, either non-US/main, non-US/contrib or non-US/non-free.

Hm, I'm confused - I thought that either these programs cannot be
packaged at all, or they end up in (non-US/)non-free.

AJ, could you please clarify: Do we need two versions of the first CD?
