[whatwg] Proposal for secure alternative connection

I want to propose "secure alternative connection for the current
connection". It has to me specified either by headers or by meta tag.

Header example:
Secure: https://pay.reddit.com/

Meta tag example:
<meta name="secure" content="https://pay.reddit.com/">

When a user sets his web browser to connect over secure connection if
available then the browser will redirect itself to that secure
connection. Also, this is backward capable.
