I think the important question is whether there is or could be the potential for sensitive information on the website. Not everything has to be HTTPS and locked down. But, I definitely think something that was like a smart "Hey, we noticed this site asking for credit cards and isn't using any security." pop-up or overlay would be fine.
I do wonder...what is google's gain from pushing this? Do they have access to making money somehow through the forcing of this beyond assuming that it would lead to more users?
