At present, it looks like:
We have a powerful device, we don't want anyone else to have it.

But, yo, helloo, others have more powerful devices.

Oh yeah! then we also ban importing those more powerful devices into

But, er .. it doesn't make sense.

What sense, care to explain.

It just makes sense to us. Get lost.
