Ideas for how to do that welcome;-)

Its UI stuff (and hence not an IETF thing really), but afaik,
we've (tech industry generally) failed miserably in informing
end-users about TLS.

Its not something we should try solve here, or construct
pre-conditions from, but equally we should be skeptical of
solutions where a well-informed end-user is needed. (And
that's implicit in some of the recent discussions here.)
