Hi list,

(Editor hat on)

On behalf of the Council, I’d like to bring this pull request to the attention 
of the community:


Input from server operators specifically would be welcomed to see if this 
change is in fact desirable or if you can see any issues with that. At least 
one member of the community has already expressed [1] that they think this may 
lead to downgrade attacks.

kind regards and thank you,
