If this sort of proxy discovery/negotiation process is such an 
improvement, it seems like there might be merit to specifying it in 
parallel for HTTP/HTTPS 1.1 and HTTP/HTTPS 2.0, even if the messages and 
state management used aren't exactly identical.

It might distinguish the proxy and/or interception issues from HTTP 
version issues.

The HTTP/HTTPS 1.1 case doesn't have to compete with with direct 
connections so much as with the other proxy or interception gimmicks 
already deployed, whether corporate antivirus or coffee shop wifi filtering.
