You'd think satellite capacity would be subject to some more
international set of regulations than those of the FCC. Are you
saying that if I buy preemptable capacity on PAS-N to uplink from
New Zealand and downlink to Fiji, that the capacity is subject
to preemption by the US Government under FCC rules?

Or is there an assumption here that there's an (up|down)link on
US soil involved?

I believe that it has more to do with whom owns the bird and what
jurisdiction they are under. US-based companies must follow FCC regs.
