That sounds great about 90% of the time. However, think of someone who
is troubleshooting something or is dealing with a site
that has https and http content that are not the same, but may share
the same URLs (or URLs that at least don't error).

Doing it by site according to rules makes a lot of sense, that way I
just can leave out rules for any special sites, or sites that I might
personally be working on and need to be able to use both ways (testing
to be sure it works for the masses)
