  I would tend to argue that, in the web browser case, the list of 
configured trusted proxies and/or configured trusted CAs for proxies 
should go in a separate "bucket" from trusts for CAs used web servers, 
and should distinguish GET vs CONNECT tunnels.

It's not so much that typical end users care about trusting a FOO-server 
vs a BAR-server (though maybe they should), but it should be possible to 
manage the proxies in use by some means, and that software  may care 
about these distinctions.
