Why doesn't openssl in RHEL7 and RHEL8 support the EC brainpool curves ?

Solution In Progress - Updated -

Issue

openssl is not supporting EC brainpool curves, neither on EL7 nor on EL8 - what is the reason behind that in source RPM they are disabled with a patch (EL7: openssl-1.0.2c-ecc-suiteb.patch)
