Such a GStreamer element could be mostly used for internal purposes
(ex: for streaming to home devices, like TV set top boxes), and may
well be reverse proxied for security-critical applications...

Glad to hear a dead-simple http sink could be interesting; a chat on
the IRC channel seemed to open up the feasibility of wrapping up
tcpserversink using standard webservers... Not investigated yet this
