For all incoming forward proxy requests your statement is complete nonsense.

The Host: header consistently appears to reflect the hostname of the
URI of the proxy
request (as distinguish from httpd internal proxy requests)..

Given that * is a perfectly valid host cert CN, as is
while is the altname of the certificate, accessing
MUST NOT break when upgrading from 2.2.25 to 2.2.27.

I see no evidence that the users are being considered here, only the particular
scenario advocated by a couple of pmc members.  Our absolute policy is to
minimize disruptions for users when they migrate from 2.2.x to 2.2.y, or from
2.4.x to 2.4.y.  This test failsto meet that test for legitimate or
for illegitimate
(as deigned by yourself) configurations.
