The ITU itself is likely irrelevant.  However, those who run ISPs across
either the left or right puddle are likely to be hit with CALEA-like issues
within the next few years, when their countries adopt similar laws.  And those
who think the EU's stand on privacy of data will prevent a CALEA should
consider the sorts of data-retention proposals that are getting floated
over there.

Yes - the laws themselves are politics.  Being able to install compliant
routers without breaking the budget is totally operational... ;)
