There seems to be a reasonable amount of support for this, and no dissent that I've heard. 

What needs to be specified here? We don't say much about proxies yet. I suppose we might need something like RFC2818 for secure proxies, but that seems somewhat straightforward, and it might be better for that to happen in the TLS WG (indeed, our charter pretty much says so).

Note that I've just opened <https://github.com/http2/http2-spec/issues/413> to talk about proxies a bit more in general.
