Yes it is, and yes that's correct.  

A built in proxy server is beyond the scope of this project.  See
"goals behind the m0n0wall project" in the FAQ -
http://m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/faq-goals.html

That would best be done with a separate server running Squid and
dansguardian or something of that nature.  These types of things are
too resource-intensive for embedded systems.
