Marvel question: An alternative for having to enable HTTP for data nodes?

We're testing out marvel and noticed that it causes failures unless HTTP is
enabled for the node. This isn't ideal for data nodes that we've disabled
HTTP on.

Is this just "the way things work" or is there an alternative I'm not aware

It's not a big deal, but does means we can't use the Sniffing Connection
Pool that some clients support because it round robins across all nodes
capable of HTTP traffic.
