Except that there is no in/out connection relation as HTTP connection
management is hop-by-hop, not end-to-end. Which means that when
connections is kept persistent the same outgoing connection may be
reused on requests from different incoming client connections (but at
most one request at a time).

Not even if they are not prefixed. Headers are passed through unless you
explicitly tell Squid they should not, or the very few cases where HTTP
says they should not (i.e. defined hop-by-hop headers or headers listed
in Connection:)
