Right, but there is not reason why a shared proxy service couldn't have such 
an interpreter, e.g. a D-Bus service with an API like this

<method name="GetProxyForURI">
  <arg name="uri" type="s" direction="in" />
  <arg name="proxy" type="s" direction="out" />

could resolve both static and dynamic settings.
