I think the MAC is integral(?) so I doubt you'll be able to "turn it
off".  IIRC in encryption you have the privacy (encryption) but you
need the MAC to ensure integrity (not tampered with).  Something like
that, anyhow.  It's integral to how ssh works as it promises both (I do
believe).  Besides, without MAC you'd have written corrupt backups to
disk! :-)

And, no ECC?  For shame!!  ;-)
