We generally take the view that if there are N ways to do things in the
world we allow packaging of all of them.   This package isn't something
I want, but prohibiting it because somebody might use it when we think
they shouldn't is beyond our normal practice.

That's a totally valid complaint about DESCR.  It seems the current
DESCR was rototilled by me after a previous discussion, or at least it
sounds that way when I read it :-)

Would also be fair to rename to debian-ca-certificates-openssl and then
it doesn't seem so confusing.
