On a quick skim thorugh your post, it seems like this solution is the closest.  

I have not checked the code, but I assume apache decides the hostname
to use when doing ProxyPassReverse substitution from the
UseCanonicalName directive.  If that is true, setting
"UseCanonicalName off" should fix your problem.

Alternatively, you could try having one name-virtual-host on the proxy
server for every one that you need on the back-end.  They would be
identical except for the ServerName.
