This would definitely work for parameters such as connectiontimeout.
But do you think it would work for connection pooling, without having to
individually declare each target worker (as we need for the moment) ?
ie. would Apache be "smart" enough to start a worker and its connection pool
for every new proxy it deals with, and if the worker has not been literally
declared in the configuration, to apply the default configuration (which could
then enable by default or at least contain connection pooling settings) ?

So if for any reason prefork MPM is used, connection pool only has one
connection :)
Understood, perfectly clear, many thanks Rainer !
