that must be a relatively recent development (it wasn't that way the last time I traveled)
what do the power strips and extension cords look like that have this sort of protection?
by the way, as for the voltage difference, the argument can also be made that the higher European voltage is more dangerous.
but voltage differences are not "terrifying regulations", nor are they regulations that allow "shoot sparks when you unplug devices" (something that's more likely with higher voltages)
