Jan, thanks for the review. And yes, I could not see a benefit too.
Since the IPA sever certificate is not a confidential information the
secure connection is not needed. And since we do not trust the server's
certificate in this step of installation and --no-check-certificate is
used, a secure connection would be used for server identity validation

Therefore, I would ask for the patch to be pushed.
