As of this matter being exposed , i wonder where to draw the line betwen
Personaly I wouldn't go there with a NIDS. 

Why you might ask your self , well there is many reasons ,the first one
the scope of what you are trying to protect. Unless the monitored Server

farm allow some users interaction to the outside world , those kind of
problems shouldn't arrise since basic policy should deny any web
browsing from those servers sure they can be other vector but lets just
start with this one.

Now that we have gziped payload , what about HTTPS tunnel? Where is our
HTTPS MITM preprocessor ;).

Then you might have to think arround and see how many HTTP problems can
be solved by using proxy [also this little HTTPS problem ;)].
