As TLS WG Chair:
1. As Stephen says, the TLS WG saw a presentation about explicit support
for proxies and there was very little support in the room for that idea. This
isn't to say that some future version of this idea would not be accepted,
but there are no current plans in this area.

2. RFC 2818 was a TLS WG item, so any updates to that would really need
to be done by the TLS WG.
