Hey Tigt—I’ll leave your first point to the ALA editors.
On the second, that’s a great question and my answer is: not sure. A guess, based on the Pew research report I referenced, is that people don’t know a much about HTTP vis-a-vis HTTPS, or the colors associated. That’s one reason that something as simple as “privacy icons” could go a long way. We could be doing a heckuva lot better at communicating.
