OP specified he wants to do this on 2.0, which doesn't have
ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain.

As I see it, there are two solutions:
1) Use 2.2. It is what 2.0 was supposed to be anyways..
2) Get the backend server to generate the correct content for the
correct hostname. If you configure the proxy with ProxyPreserveHost, and
then configure the backend system to respond to that host name. Then, no
rewriting is required and everything will just work.

Cheers

Tom
