mod_proxy is hard-coded to use HTTP/1.0 (for both requests and
responses), no matter what the rest of the server is set to.

(someone *should* upgrade it, but that's a different point: Especially
with the proxy server, HTTP/1.1 features are important not just so we
can label it "HTTP/1.1", but because it makes for better
proxying. Anyhow.)
