Nonsense.  From a client point of view, a reverse proxy is serving as
an origin server, and may be one of many components.  It's
entirely reasonable for it to run any origin functions you choose
to configure, whether that be authentication, content aggregation
(e.g. ESI), firewall (e.g. Ironbee), or anything else.

A good way to do that is to delegate the task to a reverse proxy.
