No, there is definitely only one interpretation, you got a wrong one ... 
your "please update" is totally nonsense in this context;

as the garbage collection isn't escorted by police, there is no need of 
TLS everywhere;
just as much as really needed;

this screenshot  shows totally different content as supposed to be shown 
in connection with the URL presented in the address bar of the browser;
the same it would be with TLS.
but exactly this was the reason for  Dan Anderson

he wrote: "But I think I would still care about the integrity benefits 
(Am I talking to the site I think I am talking to?, is there a man in 
the middle?, etc.)
I can't think of a case where I would not want this assurance."

this screen shot shows the counter evidence of his requirements of 
comprehensive TLS;
