Perhaps https should remain reserved for encrypted, authenticated connections, but a new 'httpx' or similar URI scheme would be introduced for encrypted but not-necessarily-authenticated ones.

95% of users have no idea what https means or even that there is a difference between http and https, so it's not a big issue, but I take your point that any change shouldn't downgrade the security currently offered by https bookmarks.
