surely there are better ways of achieving this in your routers,

simply differentiating the route based on TCP port 80 would get 85% of their
sure people could bypass it, but it wouldn't be in their interest to do so
in the case your proposing.
It would also have the upside of people being able to do host overrides, and
not breaking some sites.

the whole proxy thing is kinda odd actually, being that ive seen figures
around that HTTP traffic is now
such a low percentage of bandwidth...  why bother.  I guess they still
figure its 'enough'
