Don't be scared to change how the proxy works - if the change is an
improvement, it should be included.

If you're modifying headers, then your changes should be made to
mod_headers - otherwise you will end up with similar or the same code in
two modules, which is bad. (code in mod_headers expoiting your hook in
mod_proxy might be a way to this)

But backtracking a little - you said you needed this functionality to
modify the behavior of the X-Forwarded-For (and similar) headers.
Perhaps adding options to modify the X-* behavior is a better idea - the
fact that these headers are hard coded in and are not able to be
disabled is a bit bogus.

What exactly are you trying to achieve? (Removing them? Changing them to
another value?)
