I don't think that is at all appropriate here.   This is not about
recomended software, it is a suggestion "you may not have set up your
machine the way you want and adding this package will override your
choices to a way that somebody else thinks is good".   And, it has
really nothing to do with particular openssl-using packages; I see it
kind of like "do you have a default route to the Internet".
