There isn't necessarily one - there are lots of differnt examples of people
doing this. tablin, the W3C tool  for re-configuring tables, allows you to
set it up as a proxy so that if a table comes in a form that makes no sense
you check one of the reconfigure options added to the page and get it again
in a different format. IBM has a project doing this kind of transformation
specially for accessibility.

The things that people might consider catches are that there is an issue of
what information is being stored about you in order to make the suystem work,
and how hard is it to get what you want from it (do you lose all ads, or do
you ose some ads and some real content, or ...?)

But in general this is a sensible approach to solving a umber of different
problems.
