XMPP an TLS Encryption

We are attempting to use FreePBX XMPP, but it is not configured to use any encryption, which is something I consider to be a security flaw. Searching the forums, I found a thread from another user that was able to configure letschat to use TLS here: Xmpp encryption

That thread resulted in a feature request here: https://issues.freepbx.org/browse/FREEPBX-17354

However, that feature request was closed as “WON’T FIX” without any comment as to why. Has anyone else done this, or does anyone have any insight as to why this shouldn’t be set to use encryption out of the box? I’m actually a little shocked that FreePBX would be running the XMPP server without encryption.

Anyhow,I now have it running with TLS, and I see no ill effects, but I expect my changes to the settings.yml to be overwritten by FreePBX at some point, so it would be good to have this work as an official part of the distribution.
