The proposal from Dennis and the reason for it is not connected - at 
least this is my opinion.

The reason for browser error messages that HTTP and HTTPS content is 
mixed-up is in no relation with collecting some data about website visitors.

I also think we should keep the analytics stuff like it is and 
concentrate on the problems that just results in a wrong usage of URLs 
in the HTML code on some webpages.
