I think the main reason static libraries are often in separate outputs
is because of bandwidth concerns, since they are often much larger than
their dynamic counterparts (.so). And the closure size can be smaller,
since they don't contain external references.

LibreSSL probably haven't seen enough use for it to be a concern. Feel
free to submit a patch! :-)
