Sitemap.xml need to aid search engine discovery of Schema.org terms #1483
Schema.org terms and descriptions are not always easily discoverable via search engines. This is also reflected in the quality of the schema.org site search powered by Google Custom Search.
Creation of a sitemap file to direct search engine crawlers should go someway towards solving this issue.

Think you can see where I'm going here. Permitting a web page to be accessed under both HTTP and HTTPS is decidedly not a best practice. And in terms of which formulation to prefer, (Google is unambiguous in regard to preference here).
Any support this year for my annual proposal that schema.org URIs be canonicalized under HTTPS, with the HTTP version 301 redirecting to the HTTPS version? Apologies if I can't recall some deal-breaking objection as to why this is not possible (i.e. it breaks some functionality). Perhaps absent any quick responses I'll just open a new issue proposing that (and rolling the use of rel="canonical" into this).
