You are correct, though it should be noted that Apache's proxy server
is a HTTP/1.0 proxy (and labels its responses and requests such), not
a HTTP/1.1 proxy (although the rest of Apache is
HTTP/1.1-compliant). Bringing the proxy to full HTTP/1.1 compliance is
not something we anticipate being able to do within the Apache 1.2
timeframe, but is planned for the next release thereafter.
