No of course not.
I just noticed in the Ash page, that we have this link.
So we can do the same with Dash.
Still remains user preference. 

But if I had to choose between the various shell for symlink to /bin/sh, that
would be Dash, because it is a standard POSIX shell. I will say it
again.
Follow standards. This is our way.

If the standards are poor, which in cases indeed they are, we have to
propose new.
