Good question.  My understanding is that the firewall is supposed to
re-encode the header.  That is, it should maintain a dynamic table on
its connection with the client that stays in sync with that of the
client, decode the header block using this dynamic table, and
re-encode it towards the server using a context that is in sync with
the server.

Cheers,

Bence
