Yea, primary reason that hasn’t been done is up until recently we (PyPI)
were relying on the TLS certificate provided by Fastly and they were
unwilling to make a promise to also be using a particular CA for the
next N years. We now have dedicated IP addresses with them so we can
provide them with whatever certificate we want, now it’s just a matter
of selecting CAs and the political process.
