Not quite. If one did accept the mainly-bogus arguments for
MITMing TLS (and I clearly don't:-), and you want any level
of security at all, you need a secure N-party protocol instead
of TLS or to change HTTP significantly and use multiple but
linked TLS sessions. I don't know of any real solution for
these mainly-bogus requirements that does not involve web
servers being able to authenticate every possible proxy in
either case. Being able to do that is just not practical IMO.

The problem with claims that you don't need the ability
for any web server to authenticate any proxy is that that
would allow any middle-box to join any TLS session which
would mean that TLS confidentiality would be a thing of the
past. That'd be a hugely bad outcome.

Requiring that web-sites can and will go through all the
URLs they serve and decide which are ok to MITM and which
are not also seems bogus to me. That'd either result in
failure to establish many many TLS sessions because we'd
have invented a bogus-standard that more or less forced
proxies and web servers to choose non-interoperable options
or else would mean that many many TLS sessions were MITMable
through web-server admin inaction. Again both are hugely
bad outcomes.

Oh, and I've left out the fact that there are many non-web
uses for TLS any of which could be screwed if we standardised
a way to MITM TLS designed to satisfy mainly-bogus HTTP proxy
driven requirements. I don't see any of the proponents of these
mainly-bogus requirements doing the security analysis of the
impact their mainly-bogus solutions would have on those other
protocols. Hey - there's likely another hugely bad outcome
or 10.

The answer about what to do here is obvious to anyone who
cares about security and BCP61 says the IETF does. What to
do here is: don't break TLS.

used above).

If a web server cares, it can add an account for the user
(not UA) and the UA is (sort of) under the control of that
user according to our host-based security models. Proxies
are just unknowns.

Stephen.

PS: Yes, the above uses pejorative language. Apologies for
that, but yes, it is deliberate;-)
