I am not sure I understand why a forward or a reverse proxy should 
modify the URL that is sends to the downstream server. I see no 
difference between the two - I think the unmodified URL should be passed 
as is.

As for mod_proxy's internal handling of the URL, there is a need to 
decode the URL, as requests for /%41%42%43 and /ABC must both match the 
ProxyPass defined for /ABC which they only will do if decoded first.
