I think you're wrong about that.

TLS already today leaks a lot of information to an eavesdropper, and
adding a convenient routing-envelope will not increase that leakage
if it is done correctly, but it will make it a lot easier for HTTP
server side to implement and handle protected traffic at high
traffic densities.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
