There's another stumbling block I tend to trip over on each package
upgrade: nagios-nrpe, which also doesn't do SSL by default, but the
nagios server I connect to insists on SSL...

Is there a particular reason SSL encryption isn't turned on by
default where it can?

I would have thought that in the current environment with mass
surveillance going on, it would be pertinent to turn that on by
default whereever possible.

It seems that these packages support SSL as an option but does not
