How feasible would it be to have a similar phase for new requests inside 
the same (keep-alive) connection?

For me, the interesting use case here would be marking connections with 
IP_TOS/SO_MARK for traffic-shaping/routing purposes and being able to 
change marks while the connection is still open depending on the 
specific content that's being transferred for that request.

Best regards,
