I think a lot of the sites that allow 443 through are growing more and 
more uncomfortable with it.  So it's likely to change, esp as traffic 
migrates to https.

Therefore I wouldn't assume things will remain the way they currently 
are - in terms of people allowing or not caring.

I think the "smooth" upgrade path might take aeons :)

It would be interesting if it were possible to do an experiment using 
another port.  Google would be in a position to test that :)
