Currently: "A client configured to use a proxy for a given request
SHOULD NOT directly connect to an alternative service for it, but
instead route it through that proxy."

I take that to mean that you would query proxy.pac with the request
URI.  That's limited, but no worse than what we have today.  If you
are motivated, you could fix the shortcoming, but the pragmatist in me
notices the efficacy of Mark's text in avoiding the need to specify
something that depends on a non-existent specification for proxy
