I think that this question doesn't really read on -messaging, but more on -semantics.  However, I am not seeing any requirement on the server to ensure that the response it generates is secured.

s 4.2.2 of semantics -- https://httpwg.org/http-core/draft-ietf-httpbis-semantics-latest.html#https.uri

> A client MUST ensure that its HTTP requests for an "https" resource are secured, prior to being communicated, and that it only accepts secured responses to those requests. Note that the definition of what cryptographic mechanisms are acceptable to client and server are usually negotiated and can change over time.

No similar requirement is made of the server.  It would be trivial to impose a similar requirement on servers in that same paragraph.

s 4.3.3 of semantics is another place you might look for this: https://httpwg.org/http-core/draft-ietf-httpbis-semantics-latest.html#https.origin
