And probably the highest potential risk, unfortunately.

 From the packet's perspective what's the difference between the helpful 
header rewriting that my middlebox performs and the evil rewriting that 
your middlebox performs? i.e. how can you tell the boundary of a site? How 
can you create a decent security association between the endpoints and the 
middlebox?

Every approach in this space leads one into having to make some very hard 
decisions!
