Imagine a hypothetical where five years from now someone believes that the
law is unconstitutional and is embroiled in a lawsuit about it against the
government.  This person does not, in fact, agree that the law restricts
people in any way (since an unconstitutional law is not valid).  However,
the software license demands that he agree that he is restricted by law, so
he is barred from using the software.
