There are no proxies in the XMPP architecture as defined in RFC 3920. 
Please define the term and specify how it applies to this discussion. If 
you mean something like a connection manager, then I think the concern 
is implementation-specific or, at most, should be addressed in JEP-0114 
for external components or in JEP-0124 for HTTP connection managers. If 
you mean something other than a connection manager, then I don't see how 
this belongs in rfc3920bis.
