Perhaps that's the problem.

There has been a movement to blindly "encrypt all the things" even for 
stuff that may not require it ? Why ?
I have no problem with what benefits from it, but if you look certain 
scenarios that's not really something necessary, so in that sense I 
always like the Keep It Simple principle. I don't see that OpenWrt 
really requires HTTPS enabled by default for most usage scenarios 
really, but I would be glad to be convinced the contrary.

Again, I think that if it doesn't impose much extra space consumption 
and it does not come enabled by default it may be a good middle term if 
there are significant cases, although not majority, that may choose to 
enable and use it.
