I think any module that speaks ajp/1.X should be called mod_ajp, keeps 
things simple and clean.

I don't think mod_proxy should support ajp, rather a dedicated ajp 
module should.

But I'm still not convinced a separate protocol is needed when HTTP 
exists and is supported already.

The "httpd serves the static content" feature can be implemented through 
extending ProxyPass to support regular expressions, for example:

ProxyPass /myWebapp/*.jsp http://tomcat/myWebapp/

I'm not sure if persistent connections over and above HTTP/1.1 
keepalives is that useful.
