Description

<https://svn.tools.ietf.org/svn/wg/httpbis/draft-ietf-httpbis/latest/p1-messaging.html#https.uri> is slated to define the semantics of HTTPS urls.

We currently talk about HTTPS' impact on caches and identity there, but we don't mention one other major effect on HTTP -- the use of CONNECT to proxies.

I think we need to define HTTPS as having a semantic of *end-to-end* use of SSL/TLS, and therefore CONNECT to proxies.

From [1903]:

https requires and end-to-end secured connection. Addresses #383

Refer just to TLS, not SSL/TLS.
