This is not strictly true. 

I don't think you can assume that visibility is always a good 
thing.... and I would say that in many cases, HTTP 1.1 proxies have 
too much visibility, especially from a security perspective.... the 
classic "man in the middle attack" can be made fairly easily unless 
you're using SSL etc.

I think disclosure/visibilitycan be an archilles heel...
