I agree that its a difficult implementation to handle, but the case you
mention isnt the one I was thinking about.  
What do we do with sticky headers?  Should each origin server get
1 copy of the sticky headers? Should the client have to specify
sticky headers for the 1st request to a new origin server in a pipeline?
