In two cases that I know of, a publisher which has been HTTPS-only was asked by a library customer to provide insecure service (oh the horror!) for this reason.
>>> It's been pointed out to me that while Lets Encrypt is not supporting wildcard certificates, up to 100 hostnames can be supported on a single LE certificate. A further limit on certificates issued per week per domain would mean that up to 500 hostnames can be registered with LE in a week.
