This is shoddy reporting, imho.  There is no IETF consensus on this yet,
as one would know by following the ietf and ietf-http-wg lists.  Many on
those threads have argued vehemently that encryption should be made more
convenient and attractive, and even recommended (SHOULD), but not be
made mandatory (MUST).
