User should not be treated to install anything just 'cause some sites
won't implement a secure way, or the browser is not able to inform proper.
Most users don't even know what they should look for.
As this is not only a problem of the site (using HTTP for the login site is
technically secure), I'd more like that the browser vendors keep an eye for
that and undoubtly inform the user what happens (opera 8.01 and Konqueror are
on the right track currently, but still not perfect:)
Someone out there to teach browser developers?
