I question how wise it is, because that is something that is very easy to
misuse.  In general, the connection can be used by completely different
users if it is from a proxy.  It is only in special situations, such as
when you have a layer there that makes it more than just a normal TCP
connection over which HTTP requests flow, where that is legitimately used.
