No SSL for MobileFrontend m. domain: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/ does not respond

Description

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/

"Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at en.m.wikipedia.org."

*.m.wikipedia.org has its own font-end proxy (mobile-lb) which doesn't appear to handle port 443 for HTTPS.

Note that SSL certs for *.wikipedia.org won't apply to something.m.wikipedia.org as they only apply for that single level of wildcarding. Nice.

As noted in Bug 29896 *.m.wikipedia.org should be going away soon.

(In reply to comment #1)

As noted in Bug 29896 *.m.wikipedia.org should be going away soon.

Can you provide more details on that? Note that there are iPhone/iPad apps that explicitly link to the m. domain to force 'mobile' rendering, which presumably might be affected by some sort of elimination of the domain.
