Why is Safari on an iPad running iOS 5.1 ignoring my PAC file for https URLs?

iPad running iOS 5.1. PAC file is correctly formatted. As a test case, I've even configured the PAC to simply return "PROXY myproxy.com:port";, no dice.
The PAC file works just fine when I install it on my browser. Syntax checking says it's fine. Manually configuring the proxy for this network to be myproxy.com:9080 makes everything work perfectly, but the PAC for some reason will not function as expected.
I'm at my wits end with this one. Google is awash with people at .edu's whining about apple and very little technical details. Help me askmefi, you're my only hope!
