I'll try your tips tomorrow. Thanks a lot.

I thought about another approach : leaving as is my public DNS zone,
and modifying my private one to distribute private IP for public
domain names. My Reverse Proxies have just to be taught to use the
private DNS, and all I have to do is to configure the VH with ProxyPass /,
being resolved to the IP had previously.

Seems to be the same idea you describe, but with more flexibility &
robustness - thanks to real DNS records.

Anothet thanks. Regards,
