Oh, if only our tools possessed innate understanding of algorithm interdependencies =)

Alternative phrasing suggestion: "Allowlisting configuration mode is intended to be used by the operating system vendors that prefer laying out the library defaults exhaustively instead on depending on gnutls presets, such as NORMAL. Applications are then expected to optionally disable or enable only select a subset algorithms on top of the vendor-provided configuration." Clearer motivation for the vendors, less sounding like library users need to start looking for config-generation tools.
