It's reasonable to expect that there are different types of traffic with 
different needs: web browsing, video streaming, and transport of large 
files don't act the same. Active Directory is probably a factor in 
promoting large Kerberos tickets, but seeing them on http/https is a 
corner case outside intranets.
