No it *can't*.  master, ftp.debian.org and other US mirrors are
mirrored all over the world.  If we put crypto software into main, we
will be responsible for several mirrors unwittingly violating US
export laws.  However lame we think the laws may be, deliberately
inducing other people to unknowingly break the law is not something we
should *ever* contemplate doing.

[There's also the matter of CDs]
