Ya I understand, but how would one go about implementing such a feature using the existing
TS APIs? If such a feature would never be accepted into escalate that is fine, we can move
it to a new plugin.

We have a desire to avoid contacting third party origins for the response body for error
conditions (as well as continue to have expandable templates - so a mix of escalate plus what
is already available via body_factories). Also there is a requirement to maintain at least
some of the original response headers (including the response status).
