Log:
mod_proxy.xml: docs improvements

Tried to clarify the doubts raised in PR 61225
(related also to 60458) and also split a single note
into multiple ones to improve the reader's attention span
(reading through a long block of text may cause loss
of attention to important details, as it happened to me :)
