--- Comment #5 from Quintus <quintus.public at gmail.com> ---
My apologies for digging this issue from the grave. Please let me know
if it would be better to file a new report.

A possible solution to this issue could be to add an option (boolean,
like VisualHostKey with ``yes'' and ``no'' as options) to the system's
ssh_config file.

E. Heintzmann's argument is certainly a valid one. Giving users this
option (even if ``no'' is the default) would be useful and rational.

Desktop applications are not the only applications to make use of
XDG_CONFIG_HOME; judging only by my own server, git, htop, irssi, tmux,
some distributions of vim, and zsh all offer this capability.

The theory behind the option is enumerated well here:
