EVALUATION


See the comment section. This is currently not deemed to be a critical
feature. This also puts more demand on the JNLP Client implementor.

However, JRE 1.4 is suppose to require HTTPS as part of core. So the JNLP
specification could require this when a JNLP Client is used by a 1.4 or above
JRE.
