In England and America, at least, it has been a source of pride for centuries that free, civilized people do not need any law to make them do the right thing--that it is a slight to our honor to assume we need anyone to tell us to be decent. Our law has always assumed that a situation like Holmes described, even if it can be imagined in theory, is in fact unthinkable.
