This just popped into my feedreader:

In general I'm a big fan of https-only websites, but the article has
some valid points nonetheless. There seems to be no *good* way to
balance convenience and security in this matter. Perhaps if browser
makers started to try https first when given no protocol, but that's
probably never gonna happen.
