Question on web proxy architecture

Hi all

Been trying to search the web for docs on various architectures for web
proxy deployment.

issue:  we have a new web proxy and a shiny new AV server looking for a
home in our network of 500 users.

it will be handling the usual HTTP, IM and streaming

the current proxy architecture is 'proxy on a stick' with a single
interface handling all in/out connections. it seems to do ok performance

I'm not really concerned about performance but I would like to know what
others have experienced.

so the question is where best to place the proxy?  what are the security
implications of having a proxy on a stick? its still proxying is it not?

What is the common practice for web proxy placement?
