Perhaps -- but them's the laws (in *this* context).
ccTLDs are not constrained by these, new gTLDs are -- they signed a contract.

If you believe the laws are wrong (as many do!), come help change them.
I personally think that many of the USA laws are wrong, but seeing as
I don't (usefully) participate in the political process I've lost the
right to kvetch...

And yes, they are not laws, they are contracty bits, and participating
is hard / icky, but...
