No.  It's entirely invalid.

At the very least - you are looking the r->server->lookup_defaults, plus the
<Location > sections in per_dir_config.

That's always true, anything that changes that assumption is broken.  Now if
either proxy or your patch skips the initial <Location > lookup (or it is 
otherwise circumvented) then you get what you pay for.
