Looking at your original post in this thread, it's clear the
spec to which they should've paid more attention is HTTP.
IIRC that's RFC2616.

You can't really complain that an HTTP proxy implements the
HTTP spec, but you can tweak it to support other specs.

(Without looking, I assume that's a websockets spec,
and builds on something that's mostly HTTP, and maybe
100% HTTP where proxies are excluded.)

You can implement that.  You can commission a developer to
implement that (I'd be available).  Or you can make your
interest known and hope that someone gives their attention
to it.

As I said before, it would be very straightforward to implement
what you originally asked for in mod_proxy, or rather more work
to read through that RFC in detail and scour it for any other
deviations from HTTP that haven't bitten you but might in future.
