Unless there's a proxy (security appliance, etc.) involved, excluding
the user-agent from the integrity check. What's needed is an integrity
check which is end-to-end from origin server to user agent; could be a
script, the purpose of which would be to alert the site owner and the
end user to the presence of altered content, even if that content was
altered by a "trusted" proxy.
