I suggest we leave as is; you know this is a container, but how do you know
/test is not /test/ container when looking at a proxy server?  You might hit
a directory match relative to docroot, but if it's served from the backend
proxy server, /test may be a resource.

IMHO, don't mess with the existing behavior; my 2c US, still dwindling.
