Opportunistic encryption would already do that -- if only OE wasn't
so painful with IPsec (requiring publishing DNS records kills it
clean in the water). Arguably, StartTLS already does for SMTP -- if
only it was enabled by default, using self-signed certs.

So there are methods, but no one uses them, because the other end won't
have it.
