I think it's worth a try. If you can supply a patch as josm-ticket this 
would be fine.

But I fear that this will lead to a lot of trouble if I compare it with 
the idea to implement proper IPv6 support and the required "we dig into 
the code everywhere to implement another resolving strategy".

I'd prefer if OSM does not use StartSSL for the domains JOSM accesses.
