And in addition it makes no sense at all : it demands that the User-Agent
field is set with all CONNECT requests, while CONNECT simply opens a
tunnel and doesn't need any extra information to set it up. This header
field will be totally useless for the intermediary receiving it, and it
will not be sent over the tunnel by definition since it's a tunnel and
no single byte of the request is forwarded.

Thus I'd reject it as invalid.
