I think it's an improvement. It captures the three relevant
possibilities neatly. There *is* also the option of "don't use TLS
even if available", but I doubt many people would intentionally use
that for the right reasons. I would say TLS rather than STARTTLS.
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils]. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
