If we build a strong definition of this stuff around HTTP/2 that will 
clearly be a priority and I feel confident in saying firefox will 
support that.

If you're interested in HTTPS proxy support before that I think we need 
to figure out how to fully bake the "don't proxy my bank session" use 
case in a way that is better than just letting the admin supplied wpad 
script make the decision. When not in a HTTP/2 context that's really 
outside the scope of httpbis though - feel free to write me directly if 
you want to pursue it.
