OAuth Bearer authentication - for proxies?

The OAUTH WG is creating a new authentication scheme for bearer tokens:
  http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-oauth-v2-bearer-15

During review, I wondered whether this might be a suitable scheme for proxies; the draft doesn't currently specify it as such, and our list of considerations for new schemes asks them to consider this.

Do any of the proxy implementers on the list have thoughts about this / possible interest in it?

Cheers,
