Option to disable "You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port"

| The same way you could argue that an FTP server should recognize when you use
| HTTP to talk to it.

Not really. That's a different issue. SSL ist not an application level protocol.

| Instead, when you try that, the FTP server will give you a
| FTP protocol error (not an HTTP error). I want to have an HTTPS-only server,
| ifany error is generated, it should be HTTPS.

HTTPS is HTTP over SSL.
Generating a "HTTPS" error message is impossible, since there's no established
SSL connection at this time. So HTTP is the only way the HTTP server can speak.

| The goal is to attract less attention from automated scripts.

You won't have luck with this strategy. Rather the opposite.
