Announce Openssh with telnet

I would not consider it a real bug, or security problem, but I wonder, why my 
sshd declares itself when I do a telnet on port 22:

telnet localhost 22
Trying ::1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

Would it not be better, not to show anything at all, so that someone just 
trying, whats up on port 22 does not see what programm with witch version is 
running ?

mit freundlichen Grüßen
