One of the nice things about proxy servers and web caches is
they mask end user host stack inadequacy, and thus (I allege)
tend to increase MTUs and encourage better network utilization
(in additional to the normal benefits of caching).

Proxy servers can also maintain persistent long/medium term HTTP 1.1
connections that the clients are too dumb to maintain themselves, thus
getting streaming without requiring client upgrades.
