if the reverse proxy code calls ap_set_content_type(), 

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE

should work.

(The connector module for a java application server I know of makes
the ap_set_content_type() call, enabling features like adding the
DEFLATE filter based on content-type.)

if ap_set_content_type() doesn't get called for reverse proxy, that's
a bug to fix anyway
