As mentioned above, the purpose of this change is to ensure that
vulnerabilities in obscure protocols impact a smaller fraction of
users. Right now, a vulnerability in an obscure protocol impacts
most users. With this change, it will only impact users that have
installed the full version of curl. This is independent of whether a
given protocol should be disabled outright.
I just feel that if there's enough security concern with some of the
code, then Fedora shouldn't ship that code. Either the code is secure
enough and maintained well enough to ship, or it's not.
Otherwise, don't list this as a justification for the change proposal.
