Yes, I'd say bowing out of the processing gracefully is the way to handle
this, since this request isn't being handled on the local server, and since
Ben and others have expresed the opinion that proxy requests will be
treated essentially transparently as we move towards HTTP 1.1, at least
from the standpoint of rewriting, canonicalizing, etc.

Mod_proxy itself does this in proxy_fixup().
