Follow-up Comment #2, bug #46882 (project octave):

Thanks Oliver, yes I too think that allowing unvalidated certificate should be
a user-selectable option, even though Matlab allows unvalidated https with
urlread() by default.

Many servers 301 redirect from http to https. Two problems result:
1) redirect is incorrect (broken URL) and sysadmin has no time to fix edge
2) invalid certs

Matlab just works in case 2, the more common case.
