Maybe. But either way, I don't see a straightforward way to prevent it
currently. In particular, the links from an instance to its inner algorithms
are stored in the crypto_instance_ctx() which has a template-specific format, so
it isn't currently possible to recursively search an instance to check whether a
particular template is present. We could perhaps add such links in a standard
format, though...
