> Transparent proxies are still required to insert Via?

Intercepting proxies does not exists in the HTTP specifications, and
there is things which need to be done differently in such setups.

But Via is not one of them. A intercepting proxy which do not insert Via
will break things just the same ways as a normal proxy or intermediary
so yes it MUST insert Via.

A semantically transparent proxy is just a proxy, and MUST insert Via.
