I am fairly sure that funding was never a real issue and certainly not
one that could explain heartbleed.

Akamai is probably also one of the lead reasons why people think
websites are secure when they are not necessarily too (akamai cert for
akamai server for download of acme.exe). Simplicity, cost issue?

Who's Responsibility? Just the download providers domain?
