If you just feed `open-protocol-stream' `network' without a capability
command, you get a non-upgraded connection.  If you do the same with
`try-starttls' you will also not get a non-upgraded connection.

I don't really see why the latter is clearer than the former.

(But in the latter case you could error out if you do that and not
supply a `capability-command', I guess.)
