Not exactly the same, but I don't like the part

"or require cipher suites that enable forward secrecy"

for the same reason. OpenSSL 1.x isn't around that long, and there are
still many systems which do use e.g. Debian squeeze. And I assume the
state of OpenSSL on other "stable" systems like e.g. SLES or RHEL isn't
much better (but that's just an assumption from me).
