MASQUE is proxying, right? Not quite sure if it's supposed to be also
MITM'ing the traffic? In any case, it would require clients to negotiate
a proxy session with the AP and trust it to do that properly? This may
work for a managed setup in an enterprise, but do you really expect me
to be OK with any random access point in a coffee shop being a MITM?
