Excellent, Excellent. I have meditated upon that very thing, myself. These are my conclusions:
No, Darcy doesn't propose at Rosings, there are too many things going against it:
Does he persue her to Longbourn? I think the chances now are a little better than even, though nowhere near a sure thing. He would go back to London and then be exposed to Miss Bingley again. That would be such a jolt that he would probably decide to "check out" Miss Elizabeth Bennet once more. "Now there's a classy lady!" Would you blame him? And once he does, he would eventually pop the question, but in a planned manner.
These "What-if's" are turning into quite a enjoyable discussion!
