FWIW, Debian prompts the user in a "medium" priority debconf checkboxes for which of the CAs to enable.

The list is a long one, and provides practically no information about the specific CA besides its name. It can be re-run later using the standard dpkg-reconfigure.

So it's a single dialog rather than dozens of prompts. But somehow I'm not sure the UI is optimal (or even reasonable).

No, Debian prompts the system administrator and not the user.

They're the same person, and have been for going on 25 years now.
