Mike, app urls do not have to change or be post processed. With root-relative urls you inherently do not specify http or https on links returned to the browser and the browser will maintain that ssl connection for you, guaranteed. In the event that someone navigates directly to an http url when they should have gone to https wordpress already does a redirect to the proper scheme. 

They do not apply to back end functions only. Install my plugin and browse a front end page. You will see just how often they are called with a simple debug statement to your error log. get_site_url and others in that patch are universally executed functions (front and back.)

Hope that information helps you find what I'm referring to.
