The justification is pretty much what Arnout said:

Post-image scripts may want to encrypt the resulting image with aespipe
(and decrypt it in the update tool on the target), so it is useful to
have the host version and to be able to select it in the configuration.

In fact, that's exactly why I added host-aespipe to one of my projects.
Is this enough to include it as a host package?
