	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
