Yes - sorry.  I suggest we remove the 'optimized' example altogether, and
will go ahead with that if nobody objects.  We obviously don't keep up.  I
will also duplicate the SSLCipherList to SSLProxyCipherList (all examples
are now in global scope).

I propose we replace the 'optimized' example with the following;

#  Effective 2017, only TLSv1.2 ciphers should be in use.
#  Older ciphers should be disallowed as soon as possible, however
#  much older clients such as IE6 SP2 on XP may still be in use.
#  Replace the SSLCipherSuite and SSLProxyCipherSuite directives
#  above with these directives to restrict mod_ssl to TLSv1.2 ciphers
#  as soon as this is practical.
# SSLCipherSuite TLSv1.2:!eNULL
# SSLProxyCipherSuite TLSv1.2:!eNULL
