Yes. But if proxy does not support "Vary" header, it may send
cached compressed to client that does not understand gzip.
And here we have two cases:
1) in Internet there are still many proxy servers that does not
support Vary at all.
2) there are many browsers that does not understand compressing:
if MSIE 5.5+ configured to work via HTTP/1.0 proxy it never sends
"Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate" and does not decompress gzipped
