After thinking for a moment, this raises interesting social concerns. If you have a server in this kind of web that just happens (at any point in time) to have 300 images of child pornography, 500 Terrorist financial transactions, and a few encrypted black mail emails that are in transit; does this make you as owner of the server complicit in the transfer of this information? Common sense says no, since you would not be in control of what data is stored and unstored on your server. In fact, you couldn't be if the security model is to work. In a sense, every computer in this cloud would become a router with caching and immune from prosecution for the traffic being routed.
