The statements you've made thus far do not as far as I can tell provide any logical basis as a consequence of which the IETF could sensibly honor your request. For example, you haven't explained why you think we should bowdlerize all our protocols to make sure that they are legal in even the most repressive state.
I'm not sure that's even possible. But legality was not the only reason I put forward. I am not in particular an NSA booster. My main concerns are that this will harm the operation of the Internet and take away user choice.
