RFC 2109 does not prohibit receiving secure cookies over and insecure channel 
(See section 4.2.2).  Thus, HttpClient should not throw an an exception in this 
case.  

The specification *does* gives us (the client) the leeway to decided when we 
will send 'secure' cookies back to the origin server.  HttpClient will sill 
only add secure cookies to a Cookie header if the connection is secure.
