Interesting but I think the myriad of convoluted laws, taxes etc. might 
also be a part of the reason. Personally, I think that Apple could open 
up all of the iTunes Stores to everyone regardless of national laws. 
Then if a country didn't like it they could put their own block on it. 
That way it would be obvious that it was a local decision to not allow 
access to the iTunes Stores. It would also be up to each country to 
collect any taxes they impose directly from the person who bought the music.
