In other words, this is like letting your purchasing people contact your
company's bank using a secure browser. Again, are you asking the same of
browser makers?

OpenSSH used to block access to a host that changed fingerprint, requiring
that one remove the old entry from the knownhosts file manually. Now it
just offers up a warning and allows one to override with a keystroke. (This
might just be a change to the global config file setting.) I prefer the
latter when I'm using it to connect to my home server and the ISP has
changed addresses on me.
