Am I the only one who think we should be able to mix protected
and unprotected transactions on the same TCP stream ?

I really don't see why the user should have to open a new connection
just because they want to log into a site, and it would allow
proxies, gateways and routers to use fewer connections more

(Of course, this largely depends on my proposal for an always
unprotected envelope, but I think I already "sold" that ?)

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