Sure. No problem.

In specific the requirements on strict transport connection association
for the authentication chain, requiring responses to challenges to be
transmitted over the same transport connection, and that messages are
authenticated without having any authorization headers simply by being
transmitted on a connection where authentication has completed.

Or in HTTP the required changes in the transport/message layering to
support the above, including forwarding via proxies, plus the inherited
Authorization status from the transport connection..
