I would think only those satellites of US origin could be in a position to
deny non-refundable SLA time which can occur whenever they dictate.   If
they provide the initial investment into space can't they write whatever
they choose into the contract?  Even if it exceeds international boundaries?
After all,  the satellite is in international air space; isn't it?

You'd think satellite capacity would be subject to some more

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?

There are satellites not subject to US FCC regulations.  PAS-2
isn't one of them.
