Correct

Well, it can be very convenient to manually add a modern curve as first choice
and add less modern curves for compatibility reasons. More software in the wild
accept multiple curves like haproxy or nginx as mentioned above. I feel the
ability to specify only one curve is very restrictive.

This was indeed incorrect, multiple curves are available with auto.
