This attitude seems to be, on a first look, the most logical and
respectful one.

But, I want to be remember, that the risk perception is often not
proportional *at all* to the risk itself. In daily life, many risks are
suppressed because the imagination of a constant threat would paralyse
all activities. So, this feedback from the Chinese community should be
handled carefully.

I tend myself to think that deploying HTTPS everywhere and force its
usage is the best long term approach.

However, this is without any doubt, a difficult dilemma.
