To be sure, I wasn't arguing in favor of the hidden middle-boxes.
Rather, I'm arguing that the behavior is not the defining metric.

For example, the behavior of late-data can be seen by well-behaved and
efficient proxies and caches just as easily as it can be seen with
kludge-boxes. The practical difference here is whether or not the client
has a choice about it. With the kludge-boxes the client has no choice.
