--- Comment #2 from Leo Natan <leo.natan at outlook.com> ---
The bug was opened with security SSLVPN products in mind, where VPN is not feasible/possible, but the administrator would like to have internal web applications not exposed to external networks. So a security gateway acts as a secure MITM to transfer specially crafted URLs, as given in the first comment for example, to internal resources. Since an admin cannot be expected to modify the web applications, and such applications might have absolute paths to resources, rather than relative ones, all resources should pass through such a theoretical system for augmentation. This is a pretty common usecase in security applications, and is not possible to achieve using WKWebView on iOS without using private API.
