I believe (respectfully) that you are thinking curl should have been an app-id (or something).

 

Your original comment was

For instance users were trying to curl www.google.com and the PAN was classifying that as 'google-base' 

 

 cURL is a tool to transfer data from or to a server, and the pattern that was seen was to the host-header of google.com.

Therefore, what the person is doing, is google-base.

 

If someone wanted to curl to facebook.com,. you would need to allow facebook-base

If someone wanted to curl to yahoo.com, you would need to allow yahoo-base.

Same if someone wanted to curl to your sharepoint site, you would allow sharepoint, probably ssl, and additional app-id defined apps.

 

I know you understand it, so I am not sure we can answer anymore to the degree you are looking for.
