On the one hand more security is a nice to have, but on the other, Cool
URIs dont change.  It's really hard to estimate the cost, and unintended
consequences of changing URIs.  But my feeling is that we systematically
underestimate it.

IMHO, It's kind of a shame that http wasnt made secure, and that a new
scheme https was invented.
