the discussion was about if running proxy at all make sense.

Proxies are to reduce traffic or server load by avoiding repetitive 

With dovecot it's unlikely proxy itself will be faster, so second reason 
doesn't exist.

With same computer or fast lan or virtual lan (==normal way of running 
webmail) first reason doesn't exist.
