I think implementing this kind of feature would change the status of
[codec] with respect to export regulations in the US. As far as I know,
no commons component implement anything related to cryptography so we
can point people to a generic declaration we have already written
somewhere when they ask for our components status.

It may be good to add, but we have to think about it thoroughly.
