[PLUG] The lock down?! Uhh.. why?

If you work with either RHEL or OracleLinux - has anyone noticed the recent push for https for repos?

For example, OracleLinux:
note: the pre 2019 (http) and post 2019 (https)

As for RHEL there has been the push for RHSM away from RHN. Take a look at the repo files -  https, not http.

What is the thinking here? Can't tell if I'm just old school or if this is.. well.. bad. The gpgcheck for signatures covers fears of bogus repos. Why add https?
