cite FireSheep? as real-life threat HSTS addresses, in response to this query:

Subject: [HASMAT] HSTS Threat prevalence

Hi all

The HSTS specification talks about possible attacks that could be
prevented by the use of HSTS. Do we have any data that suggests these
attacks are actually a concern / being used by attackers anywhere ? I
couldn't find any citation to this effect in the specification.
