Regardless of the issue in rmc, NSM probably shouldn't even pop up a
modal in certain applications like Gnus and EWW when one document may
trigger multiple TLS connections. This is where we should take a page
from the browsers and email clients. For Gnus, introduce an option to
stop the downloading of images in HTML emails, so the sender cannot
track you. For email and EWW, if the TLS connections to load the
assets of the same email or webpage are insecure, do not even prompt,
but put something like [insecure content] in the mode line.
