On another list I saw a discussion regarding this (the FSB list archive 
http://www.crynwr.com/cgi-bin/ezmlm-cgi/0/ thread "Exporting Crypto in 
Practice" from december 2000, best factual email is from Jonathan 
Shapiro) and the result was that they apply DNS screening (Sun) and put 
notices on the site.  So that should be good enough.
