This is a feature, not a bug.  We can't let members add proxy rewrite 
rules indiscriminately, since simple mistakes can lead to infinite 
self-querying loops that bring down Apache for everyone.  (This isn't 
just a conjectured possibility; it happened before, forcing us to remove 
access to "P.")

Like most of the custom types in the Domtool library, [proxy_target] has 
a conservative check for what should be allowed.  I've expanded the 
check so that it should allow the path you want to use.  I've opened a 
Bugzilla bug for this with you Cc'd, and we can wrap up any remaining 
issues there.
