I'm sorry; I still don't understand what you mean. Do you mean that you
want browsers to treat some hypothetical encrypted HTTP protocol as if it
were a secure origin, but still allow non-secure embedded content in these

I would argue strongly against that, and so far not even the "opportunistic
encryption" advocates have argued for that.
