Interestingly enough, I went to an ISSA meeting which included a
vendor that intended to do EXACTLY that.  The line of thought went
something like, "Well, we're the good guys, so it's not really a MITM
attack."  I'll see if I can find the info I have on them next time I'm
in the office.  I've been curious of what legal implications that such
a proxy might incur if a breach of security happened at that point,
but that might be covered in the big nasty legal documents you often
have to sign.
