    Why would changing PHP handler be considered to conflict with the server-wide security policy in all cases?

    I can understand a warning if you chose to use mod_php in place of php_fcgi or php-fpm, but I cannot see a reason for the warning when you change from, for example, php_fcgi 5.3 (vendor) to 5.6 php-fpm (Plesk repo).
