In order to push forward with https-everywhere, this will need correction.

https://gmpg.org/xfn/11 is now fully functional as https, and there is no reason to avoid working the change into the wordpress core, as well as in core themes.

my current blog has mostly single-occurance in header.php, but one stood out with over 36 occurrances within:

$ ack -cl 'http://gmpg.org'

wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentyten/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/tempera/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentyten-madhouse/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentyfourteen/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentythirteen/header.php:1 wp-content/themes/twentythirteen-madhouse/header.php:1 wp-content/plugins/siteorigin-panels/tpl/live-editor-preview.php:1 wp-admin/includes/meta-boxes.php:36 wp-admin/edit-link-form.php:1 wp-includes/theme-compat/header.php:1

This will help avoid mixed-content warnings from some reporting algorithms and services on the web, and since it now works, there is no reason not to do so.

Hi and thank you for this ticket,

I guess this is a nice idea. In 44011.diff: Replace http with https in xfn links
