Is there any reason why the default embed code for Akamai type Adaptor (Hosted by Adobe) still uses a protocol relative URL?

I can think of none.

  1. Loading a secure script is necessarily slower due to the cost of the TLS handshake.
  2. "https://" is more bytes than "//"

Admittedly weak reasons...

One of the problems with having "//" is if you are testing locally... localhost stuff messes it up and you have to remember to change it to https.
