Tor isn't the right place to be mangling application protocols if it
can be avoided.  That's for protocol-specific tools to do in front of
Tor, such as the HTTP proxy packages you mention---or it can be in the
browser configuration itself (which also hits HTTPS and such, which is
an advantage).  Tor is and should be for transport only.

Recommending certain configurations is probably reasonable if there's
enough consensus on them.
