1. Agree => Nothing more to be done from your end

2. I think a confirmation from your end that I read that code all right is in

3. The 'issue' arises if the certificate is certified to a trusted root. In
this case, the user is not prompted, won't see the cert details but there is no
verification if the presented certificate belongs to the hostname we tried to
connect to. As such, MITM seems easily possible. This seems to be the main
issue at the moment.
