Ok, agreed, but strictly speaking only the balancer example is wrong. 

ProxyPass /example http://backend.example.com

is correct again. The basic rule for this is:

If the left side of ProxyPass ends with a / the right side must also end with a
/. If the right side of ProxyPass ends with a / but the left side does not this
will cause // in the URL send to the backend which usually does not harm, but to
play safe both sides really should end in the same manner. Maybe an idea for a
sanity check that issues a warning to the error log during the configuration
parsing of the ProxyPass directives if this is not the case.
