How so? If the government can't get to your regular data, then there's
no reason for it to be able to get to the source code you provide either.

I agree with the other concerns entirely. Also, specifying a protocol
in a license is a horribly bad thing; HTTP isn't useful everywhere,
and requiring you to rewrite the program entirely when the protocol
becomes obsolete is missing the point of free software pretty thoroughly.
