I see this as a system configuration issue and not really a problem
to be solved by the HTTP working group. It is very much a chicken/egg
problem.

Beyond that, this problem is nearly solved for iPhones with the provision
for defining a proxy in APNs. VPN mobile configs also provide for
definition of a proxy. I don't know other devices, but APNs look
like they might be a general solution which transcend the iPhone.
