Let me point out one of the reasons for leaving it up to local law
outside of the country.  Only in a small part of America is BTOB(Bring
Thine Own Bottle) tacitly illegal, but in some other countries it most
definitely is.  Without this wording, we could effectively cause all
sites and activities in a foreign country to be dry, or not conform to
corpora.  Liability laws being different, the risk for this in their
kingdoms is not comparable to the US.
