Well, as written I don't see how one can end up with the impression that
proxies should forward unknown expectations..

      * A proxy MUST implement both the client and server requirements
        of this specification.
      * If a server receives a request containing an Expect field that
        includes an expectation-extension that it does not support, it
        MUST respond with a 417 (Expectation Failed) status.
      * an HTTP/1.1 proxy MUST return a 417 (Expectation Failed) status
        if it receives a request with an expectation that it cannot
        meet.
