There are a number of issues.

A. User Interface Issues

1. How do TLS proxies currently alert the user that he is using a proxy.
2. How should the proxy alert the user that he is being proxied

B. Client Cert Requests

How do requests for client certs work through a proxied SSL connection? Can they?

How do TLS web proxies work? Which RFC are they based on?
How does it compare to tunnelling?

D. Security/Trust

How do web proxies work without completely destroying the purpose of SSL/TLS
