Why not implement the 'block filter' on your border routers?
one statement, and will always work.

ie. on your router interfaces that face the internet (say hssi2/0),
do something like:
   (assuming proxy ip address is, runs on port 3128/3130)
   interface hssi2/0
     ip access-group 101 in
   access-list 101 permit tcp any any established
   access-list 101 deny tcp any host eq 3128
   access-list 101 deny udp any host eq 3130
   access-list 101 permit ip any any

thus, any additions/deletions of your customer/customer networks
doesn't require any configuration changes to your proxy.
