We always use signatures if available. HTTPS is just a bonus for privacy.

I'm not sure how to understand that. I can't control how our users
connect to your server if I list both URLs. I'd expect them to switch to
HTTPS, but if you feel like you can't handle the load, it's probably
better if I don't list it.
What do you want me to do?
