TBB should better indicate the security of hidden services

Currently when the user visits a .onion address, the Tor Browser Bundle does the same thing it does for HTTP-only sites: it shows the generic globe next to the URL which, when clicked, states that "your connection to this website is not encrypted." Since it's a hidden service, this is clearly not true. Furthermore, clicking "more information" says that the website doesn't support encryption and that the request can be seen by other people. Obviously both are not true.

TBB should display something else instead, to indicate the security and privacy properties of the .onion domain.
