Currently you can't put up a contract for or offering items which are deemed illegal in any jurisdiction, even if they are completely legal in your current location.

You should at least be able to contract items with legality restrictions in places where they are legal.

For example you cannot put up a contract containing slaves in Amarr because they are illegal in Jita. You can't sell Amarr Navy tags by contract in Pator because they're illegal in Sharhelund yet you can put them on the open market. You can't contract protein delicacies anywhere because the Federation think they're the Devil's own satanic biscuits.

A "contains illegal items!" warning saying what and where it is illegal should sort out most problems and something along the lines of the "route contains lowsec" warning that courier missions used to give would sort out any funny business involving courier contracts taking slaves to Pator.

Minor thing, but supported.. there have been multiple times where i want to move items between characters.. or perhaps get a contract from a buddy who has tags i'd like to use in the store and i can't because they're illegal items... I don't see how its more legal to be telling the entire universe you're selling gallente/caldari fleet tags in the open market than making private contracts that only the seller and the buyer know the "illegal" contents.. would think the opposing faction navy would hate you more for the former than the latter.

The contract should have the same legal status as a market order, and a courier contract should have the same legal status as just holding the stuff in your cargo. I haven't ever run across this, but if that's how it works, then that is a problem.

For auctions/item exchanges allow the contracts to be made in any systems where the items are legal with a warning about them being illegal in some places. If the player wants details, he can view the items info.
