Yes for example see Peter Lepeska's post today, http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2014AprJun/1281.html.  I think it could be implemented with a certificate that explained it is a proxy (in the certificate capabilities) without necessarily needing draft-mcgrew-tls-proxy-server by just seeing the presented certificate has capability=proxy.  draft-mcgrew-tls-proxy-server does provide some additional value.
