Needing PAM auth via ssh-agent is not so uncommon and yet using sshd
is not necessarily the first (or best) solution to come to mind.

Having it available as part of openssh would be a useful bridgehead for
educating users towards better solutions, when available, and anyway
practically improve the security of the status quo.

Superior solutions are not very useful if not widely adopted.
