No, I think this is very appropriate, but the reason why it hasn't
happened yet is that nobody has figured out how to do it yet. ;) The
problem always seems to be how to tell the proxy which IP
address/port the user initially tried to connect to. But that may not
even be necessary (HTTP Host header). If a clean solution with
ipfilter/ipnat is possible, that would be cool.
