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.
