Unfortunately, I doubt it's Cisco saying "we must stop terrorists from
downloading strong encryption" and more the DoJ (or really the Commerce
Department) saying "you must do X, Y, and Z when providing downloads of
products with crypto or we'll sue you into oblivion."

Same reason that e.g. Vandyke requires an eligibility declaration before
downloading SecureCRT.
