A more interesting experiment would be to do away with SSL for a bit
and use IPsec instead.

Why would this be either interesting or desirable?

SSL is vulnerable to more attacks than IPsec and IPsec is more general  
than SSL. As such it would be good if we could have IPsec deployment  
similar to SSL deployment, similar to how it would be good to have  
IPv6 rather than IPv4 deployment, so a similar experiment could be  
useful in showing what if any the reasons are we're still stuck with  
the inferior SSL/TLS technology.
