What browser are you using? Rejecting a page without SSL is somewhat stupid. 
For many webpages the only benefit of SSL is that you have a certificate that 
the content is correct. While certainly it would be possible to do some 
man-in-the-middle attack tricking you into having Lilypond into executing 
arbitrary scheme code it is still safe to say that most likely SSL does not 
matter for Lilypond. But SSL is not free, it requires a bit of computation 
power. Google even once redirectes https to http because the load was too high. 
So if any webpage uses SSL the internet would suddenly require noticably more
