SSL-Settings for Healthchecks (mod_proxy_balancer)

Hello all apache-users!
I'm trying to set up load-balancing to backends which use different SSL/TLS settings.
I'm using version 2.4.33 of apache.
According to documentation it should be possible to set SSLProxy* directives inside a <Proxy> section. I'm trying to do something like this :

SSLProxyEngine on
<Proxy balancer://mybalancer >
SSLProxyProtocol TLSv1.2
SSLProxyCipherSuite ....
(other SSLProxy* directives like SSLProxyCAFile etc.)
BalancerMember 1.....
BalacnerMember 2.....

In the above example, the healthchecks use the standard SSL-settings defined in global scope, not the ones defined inside the Proxy section
The idea behind that is, that i want to set different TLS-settings (for healthchecks) on different LoadBalancers. When i move the directives up (on VHost level), the healthchecks take that into account, but like this, i cannot create more then one balancer inside a vhost...

If also asked this question on stackoverflow :

Any suggestions welcome.

It seems that the merging between the Balancer and VHost does not
happen in mod_proxy_hcheck (health check).
Can you test patches?

If so, something like the attached patch might work (untested on my side).
