Particularly when the "thing" is inserted without any form of knowledge or authorization by the endpoint.

The discussion should be qualitatively different when the endpoint owner/user/etc. is required to do something in order to authorize the "thing" to access the endpoint's encrypted traffic.  A deployed example that may help in thinking about this is insertion of firewall decryption root certs into a browser's trust store to enable a firewall to inspect all encrypted web traffic that enters or exits a corporate network.  This is only an example - these three sentences are *NOT* a proposal to standardize anything ... but they are a report on current "running code" ...
