No, it's not because of that at all. There are no hardcoded URLs in the 
site this was developed for.

It's needed because of 3rd-party external stuff (analytics, remarketing, 
etc.) that doesn't work with HTTPS yet, which requires parts of the site 
to stay plain HTTP. That which means [area] has to be able to generate 
both HTTP & HTTPS.
