    Not an expert here!, Mostly because of the usage of FTP, LDAP and SMTP in comparison to HTTP. These protocols (except SMTP) are mostly used in the internal network, so it is assumed to be safer than over the internet. HTTP is used a lot more than these protocols in general, so impact would be severe.
