I think your approach is correct. However, have a look at the LogFormat 
directive. The %D directive might do exactly what you want and 
implemented in log_transaction.

Have a look at the RewriteCond and RewriteRule directives. The selective 
proxying could be implemented by these directives without writing any code.


<LocationMatch ^/your_url_pattern>
     RewriteEngine On
     RewriteCond ...
     RewriteCond ...
     RewriteRule .*  http://proxy/path?args keepalive=on [P]

<Proxy http://proxy/path>

I have not tried it with balancers but I think it works and the 
configuration is similar (balancer:// instead of http://).
