Privacy and security are definitely important. I'm not saying that encryption should be removed. I'm just wondering if there is any use case requires an API to disable encryption for insecure origins. But non-https is going to be history, maybe there is no reason to add features for insure sites.

    It also reduces the privacy of the communication. No. Encryption is
    required, even more in IoT devices.
