This is a Bad Idea(tm).  Its too open to arbitary abuse, and gives users a 
false sense of security.

If users care about their conversations being secure, they already know 
that end-to-end encryption is the answer, rather than relying on someone 
that they don't know saying 'trust me, the whole connection is secure'.
