Just seems weird in this case as a Bontrager Composite is more or less the fork of choice (then and now) for a Salsa frame.
I love a straight fork personally. And the clamp on bosses means the fork is versatile as versatile can be.
That said, I love a classy curved blade too. In fact, I’m looking forward to my next couple of bikes for the simple reason I plan to use a curved rigid fork on them! It’s a straight blade stable over here right now… Every single ride, now that I think about it!
