Following the sentiment, another, in my opinion, useful set of selectors 
would be :secure and :encrypted - for links going through encrypted and 
secure channels.  However, there needs to be a way to distinguished between 
potentially secure channels and strongly secure.  For example,

    https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/flex-sign-in-done/104-0662680-3423623

may potentially be secure, because it will be invoked via a secure 
protocol, but once followed, it may turn out not to be secure due to some 
problem with the certificate.  However, regardless of the certificate 
problems, this link will still be encrypted due to the nature of the 
protocol (what bugs me about current browsers, is that they don't 
distinguish between encrypted and authenticated connections).

Cheers
Dmitry
