Although the draft has expired, the concept lives on in various tools.  For
example DownThemAll for Firefox supports this.  There was some discussion
about including it into FF3, but then the draft was dropped and the FF support
never appeared, does anyone know what happened?

(The cynic in me would say "it's such a simple, straightforward, easy-to-
implement idea, of course it'll never be adopted when there are things like EV
certs to be pushed instead", but who knows...).
