I'm testing an automatic deployment of a cluster of xrootd proxies working on file cache mode. 
I noticed that a proxy server needs its own certificates to authenticate with the storage backend regardless the user proxy used by the client that made the request. 
On the other hand, a forwarding of the user credentials through the proxy would make life easier for our deployment and, I think, more in general for an "opportunistic" use of such a cluster. 

Said that, I'm wondering what are the reasons that led to the exclusion of such a mechanism and if it would be possible to include that in the future.
