But transport security != web security, there is plenty of practical
difference. Different schemes implies different web origins. The webpage is
*not* equivalent with if the page were loaded as https. Now you get
differences in same origin policies and CORS and referrer policies and blah
blah blah.

Not to mention it'd be a lame user experience to start out with a green
lock and then when an insecure resource is loaded (which we'd have to
allow, unless we want to block mixed content for opportunistically
encrypted webpages) to remove the security indicator. We should avoid
confusing the user with changing security indicators during a page load.
