That would mean an American law would have to be imposed on 10,000 worlds and thousands of cultures over 3000 years. Not likely. That would be like an Italian soldier telling a random guy on the street to carry his kit because it was Roman law 2000 years ago. It would be like a Japanese guy cutting another guy's head off with a katana because he's technically a member of the hereditary samurai class, the other guy is descended from peasants, and the peasant descended guy didn't show him the proper respect.

Consider the upheavals that have affected the 10,000 worlds of the Imperium over 3000 years. The interstellar wars, the fall of the Vilani Empire, the sweeping changes of the Rule of Man, the Long Night, the consolidation wars, the Civil War, worlds being colonized and being destroyed by people who didn't even know or care that Earth was the homeworld of humanity, people totally ignorant of the cultural and legal grounding of laws like the ADA. There's no way they would have a law like that, unless there were circumstances in a world's current social reality that would cause the planetary government to implement such a requirement.
