If you read bug #764, you will see that it is information disclosure that is
required for compatibility. We would probably like to get rid of it one day, but
not until the protocol is published as an RFC and not before we are willing to
give up compatibility with pre-RFC versions.

Back to this bug: I don't see any benefit in adding complexity to sshd to allow
users to disclose more information. If you really want to make this information
public, why not autogenerate issue.net at boot time? (OpenBSD does just this
with /etc/motd)
