We're cleaning up the MU links for 3.0. See here:


Core WP/WPMU links that do not obey is_ssl() and the FORCE flags are
bugs. Write tickets, and we'll fix them.  Core will never attempt to
add SSL awareness via filters on the get_option() calls for home and
siteurl because there is insufficient context to apply the SSL rules
properly.  Thus, plugins must use the *_url() API to gain SSL
