I have to agree.

The fact that it's a multi line log entry makes it more difficult to
parse. This is a concern for everyone doing log analysis (with a SIEM
for example).
If I turn on the verbose option, I break the existing parsers for
openSSH logs. All those are usually single line events. This is a
multi-line event.
Besides using the verbose option makes sshd a lot more chatty, having
the key fingerprint on the log in line would be a lot nicer.
