When should external links be HTTPS?

(working title)

Are protocol-relative links to parts of Pin Eight outside the wiki desirable?

Canonical URLs

HTTPS Everywhere rules (if not buggy), server redirection to HTTPS, and HSTS should take precedence over <link rel="canonical">, due to lazy webmasters not changing the canonical URL when they implement HTTPS support.

Otherwise, a canonical URL that does not always redirect should generally be honored.
