Looking at this some more, the Via header is optional (and therefore not 
reliable indication), we could use r->proxyreq, that would be reliable 
but only for proxy. mod_jk, etc will still have their dates munged. What 
happens to the behaviour of mod_cache and Date - surely cache should 
return the Date of the cached resource, not the date now, or am I 
reading the RFC wrong?

The way I understand it, if some entity within Apache has preset the 
date field, it is probably because underlying code requires the date to 
be that value. I do not understand why the code should be required to 
overwrite a date that is already present.
