I think you have a slight misunderstanding of what a Proxy server does.  It 
doesn't just simply pass all content untouched from server to client.  It
may do all sorts of other things including changing encodings.

Now, if the server is really unconditionally stripping the content length,
I agree that doesn't sound like a good idea, especially if serving to
a HTTP/1.0 client.  But I'll leave it for someone more familiar with
mod_proxy to take a detailed look at this.
