IMHO the policy says no such thing. It says that if a package
has actual crypto code, it goes in non_US, but packages with no
crypto code, just onterfaces to them, need not go into non-US.
Policy is not all-encompassing; and since it does not mention
patent encumberment, it is perfectly fine for non-US to host them, as
long as the local laws that non-US is governed by are not violated.
Why should parochial laws prevent this?
I am approached with the most opposite opinions and advice, and by
men who are equally certain that they represent the divine will. I
am sure that either the one or the other is mistaken in the belief,
and perhaps in some respects, both. I hope it will not be irreverent
of me to say that if it is probable that God would reveal his will to
others on a point so connected with my duty, it might be supposed he
would reveal it directly to me. Abraham Lincoln
