Why does the EULA have to 'deal solely with the ingame
behavior/activities'?  or am I misunderstanding what you are saying
here.  I would believe that any EULA could very well stipulate any
(non-illegal) condition it wanted in game, or out of game.  "This
licence is not valid for left-handed people.  If you are left-handed
you are not welcome to play Right-World!"
