Very good question! Outside of *any other* consideration, how can we 
practically make otherwise? When you think of it: the internet is a 
virtual territory. Governing it means first makling it real. We 
always have considered that the Governance was only made of the Good 
guies. But how to contain, blame and condemn Bad ones if they are 
left in the hidden, i.e. with a tremendous advantage at being bad? In 
real life, one can arrest and jail bodies. How to do the equivalent 
in a virtual world? In a way or another we must embody interests 
enough for nasty actors to be identified, blocked and punished.
