Allthough I agree that it could be beneficial to have a feature like 
that sometimes, it is a dangerous line to cross.

1) It can and will be abused
2) Server operators risk loosing their common carrier-status.

On the other hand, if one could load a module that specifically filters
ONE special message, #2 might be avoided. It's risky though.

We have no business reading peoples messages, even if to protect them.
