So, if the proxy farm fails to hash incoming requests on source IP or
target URL then this might happen. But either of these methods will
easily help avoid the problem. So, I personally don't think there is
need to further complicate things that are somewhat easy to solve
without making HTTP 2.0 even more complicated.
