This would be approximately equivalent to making it criminal negligence to
build a street wide enough to accomodate two car bombs at once.

Except, of course, that the latter case is far more important than some

The current move to try to improve traceability of packets is the right
solution.  Any solution that involves worldwide laws is a non-starter.
