Just curious, this looks like some already supported feature of nginx, only that it's supported through redirection. Is this a redirection too or a protocol change? How will that be reflected on the address bar?

No. If browser see HSTS header, then for specified time it will never even try to connect using http to this domain.

Uh, thanks, but 304 Moved Permanently also has a similar effect right?

No, 304 refer to specific URL, not whole domain.
