I think we should focus on the present, personally. If a user goes to <https://wikipedia.org>, they're quietly redirected to <http://www.wikipedia.org>. This is true of a large number of domains (e.g., <https://wikimedia.org> and <https://mediawiki.org>). This has been known about since at least October 2011 (cf. <https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/31369>) and everyone seems to agree that it's a pretty evil bug (a user knowingly tries to access a site over HTTPS and is unknowingly routed to HTTP). And yet it's August 2013 and the best response we seem to have come up with is "install a client-side browser plugin" and "we're working on it." It's difficult to believe that the Wikimedia Foundation is committed to user privacy when bugs like this go unresolved after so many months. This bug will celebrate its second birthday in less than two months.
