That is part of, I think, both RĂ¼diger's and my concern.
The benefits are this are really really fuzzy when applied
to the real world. If you know enough about how the proxies
will be used, then trying to figure out how to do
it with ProxyPass (esp. now with the Match version) is
likely better.

If not, then creating a limit means that the ones created
first get the benefits and the ones "after" the limit don't.
To me, this implies some sort of staleness factor should
be implemented, such that if "older" ones haven't been
used they should be removed to make space for
newer ones...
