The thought had crossed my mind, not least with reference
to mod_proxy_html.

Exactly, there are complexities.

It's a nice idea, that would be nicer still if it would also
handle the related cookie directives.  This kind-of feels like
a macro on top of the existing directives.

How about preserving the existing directives, but offering
something new and higher level?

<Gateway / ajp://localhost:8009/jsp/>
(or <Gateway / balancer://foo/>)

  # ProxyPass flags
  # any non-inferred ProxyPassReverse/etc directives
  # Other <Location> stuff such as authnz, filters, etc
