Agreed, we have two caches acting as the top of the hierarchy and would be
pushed for cpu if they had to compress ...

On the other hand, we have a significant number of single B channel
customers who would very much appreciate the 18-20% savings.

If you could switch compression on/off based on an acl for individual
clients this would allow you to balance cpu/throughput.

I just had a look at our combined throughput for a month and html accounted
for 29% of our overall proxy traffic.
