You don't want that.  You *really* don't want that.

The net result would be that you would effectively be tried under the laws
of the most repressive signatory to the treaty.  In fact, there *is* an attempt
at a treaty to do this - and the fact that (for example) an American citizen
who posts something related to the Holocaust on a webserver on US soil could
be extradited to Germany or France, or saying something anti-Muslim could get
you hauled off to some fundementalist Muslim state is the biggest thing
holding it up.
