If folks think that the discussion is leading away for a solution to the
problem of optimistic HTTP encryption due to it being too hard to start
from the HTTP headers, please do consider other options. A few years ago I
floated a proposal for a "HASTLS" DNS record that garnered some interest
but became bogged down in policy questions relating to fallback from secure
to insecure. (The abandoned draft is at
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hoffman-server-has-tls-05) I could revive
that draft, stripped of the fallback language, if this WG wants optimistic
HTTP but can't see a good way to get it in HTTP itself.
