That's a lot of correct analysis.

The output chain you want is INFLATE;xml2enc;proxy-html;DEFLATE .
What problems do you encounter (apart from processing overhead)
when you set all that?

I guess ideally ProxyHTMLEnable should detect compressed content
and insert INFLATE where necessary.  Maybe even have an option to
set DEFLATE.  But as of now it doesn't: I got the impression most
users prefer to disable compression, and avoid the substantial
processing overhead of zipping in a proxy.
