Would this change actually help people who need to use FIPS?

Other than that this change would only decrease the already very small
probability of a corrupted download hashing the same, which isn't a bad
thing.
If it could make some users' jobs easier, even if it by no means helps
guaranteeing the authenticity of the downloaded file, it might be worth
considering.
