There's no way to stop you doing this. But I'm not sure this is needed
at all, NetBSD officially has an international server for crypto code
(located in finland), which is being populated.
In any case NetBSD can't support such initiative, and it could have very bad
concequences not only for you, but for the NetBSD project as well.
