I don't know how complicated it will be internally, but I don't think it
will endanger any existing functionality (except TLS connections, of
course). The only reason for it in 24.x is to add reasonable certificate
handling so we can turn on certificate verification by default. I don't
think it can be done otherwise without seriously damaging the user

Would you rather not make those changes in 24.x?
