How would this be more confusing? AFAI can tell, most of the mobile web prefixes their URLs with "m". I was confused as an end user when I got my first smartphone and couldn't get to wikipedia using m.en.wikipedia.org.

This task is 4 years old with no movement, and more importantly at this point it would be sharply incompatible with subdomain issues for TLS.
