mutt no longer in non-us?

I just recently noticed that mutt is no longer in non-us. 

What has changed that allows us to distribute mutt from the US to people
outside of the US despite the fact that mutt is capable of integrating with
strong encryption software and thereby capable of performing strong
encryption on messages it sends?

Also, if mutt really belongs in main, what prevents OpenSSH from being moved
to contrib instead of non-us/non-free? Just like mutt, openssh contains no
encryption software, but relies on an external library (libssl09) to do its

And finally as a hypothetical, if a person were to create a modified version
of TiK or GAIM that used pgp or gnupg to optionally encrypt messages, would
this have to go in non-us?
