Sure, because "have server setting blindly trump clients'" is *so* much better than "have client setting forwarded blindly to the server".
And here I thought that, after OpenVPN painstakingly retrofitting one into their data channel setup, "when you need an agreement, you need an explicit negotiation phase" would be a commonly accepted tenet now ...
(As in, *let* the client send his settings, then have the shell's startup phase run a helper application that edits the env vars as necessary to achieve compatibility with the server's capabilities.)
