Believe it or not, there are still many Squid use cases where bumping is
unnecessary. This includes, but is not limited to, HTTPS proxying cases
with peek/splice/terminate rules and environments where Squid possesses
the certificate issued by CAs trusted by clients. There are also IETF
attempts to standardize transmission of encrypted but proxy-cachable

I agree that Squid user base will shrink if nobody can bump 3rd party
traffic, but that reduction alone will not kill Squid.
