I think that is not what Reimar had in mind, but rather something like this:
Unfortunately, there is no "tag" criterion for the Match directive. Maybe
the OpenSSH guys would be amenable to a patch.

I firmly believe in the following principles:
1. If the user made an explicit choice, the application must obey, even if
the choice seems stupid.
In the case of SSH: compression is disabled by default, so enabling it is
an explicit choice.
2. Applications should as much as possible try to both leave the choice to
the user and have a sensible default, but if for some reason it is not
possible (poor API on a library), then priority should be given to user
