choice of law provisions and UCITA

Has anyone recently come across licenses with choice of law clauses that
point to either Virginia or Maryland (the two states that have passed
UCITA to date)? I think this is an issue that warrants attention because
it would be a way for vendors to extend the territorial reach of UCITA
beyond the states that have passed it. 

I would like to make the argument that the type of provision recently
passed in Iowa (a temporary measure that makes such choice of law
provisions voidable) should be considered in other states.  Compiling a
listing of licenses that have this provision would be very helpful.
