Then I still don't understand your remarks. You said "is there any
reason for the clients in the stdlib are not carrying a ca_file",
but this isn't actually true: clients in the stdlib *do* carry
the CA file and *do* perform verification, see ftplib, nntplib,
imaplib, http.client, etc. It's just that it was forgotten in
