Not really. The rest of the explanation for non-US is that those
packages weren't illegal to USE in the USA, but were illegal to
EXPORT. We don't have a section for packages that you aren't
allowed to have, or aren't allowed to use.

I'm all for omitting hot-babe just because it's more cruft.
How many CPU monitors can we possibly use? I'm not too concerned
about where it's legal for adults to use it.
