This is true. But in the case of a forward proxy that is used to give office
users access to the internet in general based on there IP this is no problem.
I do not argue that this behaviour should be the default behaviour of httpd.
I completely agree with Roy that httpd by default must be HTTP compliant, but
there should be possibilties (and there already are) to
break this compliance with explicit configuration options to get some things working.
