Google Offers Encrypted Web Search Option
Many websites are hosted at a single IP address. For SSL to work I believe you need 1 website=1 IP Address. I suppose IPv6 could solve this but people could then still eavesdrop on what websites you are visiting, albeit not the pages on that website.
IPv6 could solve the don't have enough IP addresses problem and IPv6 would also bring IPSEC, which AFAIU will allow all IP traffic to be trivially encrypted.

The GPL makes assurances regarding patents that the MIT license doesn't:
"Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and propagate the contents of its contributor version."
So if you use it as a GPL licensed library you can't get sued by the BBC or other contributors to the code.
