This is a valid point somehow, but:
because model and revision number can/must be encoded with e.g. base64
it is at least not plaintext, but far from encrypted 8-)

Is it really an issue sending the revision-number/model over wire?
Is an opt-out (uci-var) thinkable?

it's about sending via DNS, so no http/https involved here.
