I believe this plan would have poor side effects. For example, if Apple ships clients with a broken ECDSA implementation , a server cannot detect detect if a connecting client is an Apple product and avoid the use of ECDSA in that subset of connections. Instead, ECDSA suddenly becomes unsafe for anyone to use anywhere.
