That's playing with words, Chrome and Mozilla representatives have been
quite clear they wanted to force a TLS-only web for 'security' and
'privacy'. Even though there is a ton of things those browsers could do
*now* to improve privacy without fostering pki on everyone else.

Really, it's getting quite annoying to see all this forceful selling of
TLS in the name of privacy and security while systematically stonewalling
any attempt to consider the parts of the protocol that are used to data
mine users now (let's use the business term not emotional appeals).
