Another directional approach for this use-case would be out-of-band content
encoding.
For example:

       https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-reschke-http-oob-encoding-12.html

It is possible that this could cover at least some of the use-cases.
It has the benefit that the client signals support (via Accept-Encoding).
The target won't get cookies, but authenticators could be passed in the URL
target.
It also has some better properties for not having to fully trust the
redirect target
and not having to have the same cert on the redirect target.
