We both use a different demographic to define "end user" for MTA-STS.. The
way you see it, an end user is a "mail server operator". The way I see it,
an end user is a "small business" who hosts their mails in a third party
mail service like Gmail. Configuring an HTTPS server is not going to be
easy for such small businesses.

The obvious answer is, of course, to write the proposal such that the https 
can be outsourced the same way the email service was outsourced, and the DNS
service was outsourced to a DNS hosting company.

There's an obvious business opportunity for hosting the email, the DNS, the 
http, and
any other bits as one turnkey package.

That may be, but I do not think, however, that this addresses Viruthagiri's 
assertion about the cost being prohibitive for some in developing countries.
