That would be the use case, yes.

We have a service oriented platform that is hardened end to end, in  
other words services are client cert protected, and apps must strongly  
authenticate to use the service using their own client cert. Sometimes  
the apps need to expose the URL space of the service directly (for the  
benefit of ajax, etc), but currently can't using a simple proxypass  
because the app next door needs to expose a different service with a  
different client cert.

As to the use case being silly, we live in an age of the cloud, where  
one app at location A is referencing a service in location B, with an  
unsecured network in between. Times have changed :)
