Um... why is that? I seem to recall http-wg having this discussion a
while ago, and deciding this wasn't neccessary (I haven't been reading
the wg for a few months, though).

And unless I'm *severely* mistaken, Apache's proxy puts HTTP/1.0 in both
the response and the request, no matter what it actually received from
the origin server. Line 388 of proxy_http.c:

        rvputs(r, "HTTP/1.0 ", r->status_line, "\015\012", NULL);
