Host is not really good either. You want to know secure versus insecure  
for instance. Now whether this is displayed as a lock versus http/https  
should be up to the user agent. In fact, if the user agent comes up with a  
novel idea to clearly indicate what page the dialog belongs to I think  
that should be allowed as well.

In specifications I have seen to date user interface requirements are  
never a MUST. A SHOULD is really their upper bound.
