In fact, even if we add the fake JMeter public key, in your trusted CA, 
we have a warning because they have a mismatching between the site name 
and common name of certificate.

Thus, the points b2 and b3 are no longer necessary.

To a progressive transition.
But I agree to make the HC4 the default (http request and cookie impl 
too). If everybody are ok?

Perhaps, in 2-3 JMeter versions (for example the next major X.0 version, 
we can remove Java and HC3 impl (request/cookie), to focus on HC4)

I will put the tickets on bugzilla:
1) remove https spoofing and filter
2) change the default implementation to http request to HC4 (if ok)
