You could be squeamish or have a NIMBY approach. You think porn is just
fine. Just not on your server, please. (Reserve judgement on whether this
is a defensible or moral position for now.)
This way you can trade it away and your personal preference stays a
personal preference. The system overall isn't affected because you decided
to drop some data.

Also, who's to say that Free Haven nodes will get an ISP exemption?
Common carrier law is supposed to be a good deal more complicated than any
of us realize; it doesn't seem prudent to design around it.
