It should work.    The headers are non-standard so it should be
X-Name, X-Class, X-type, and the biggest risk you run is that some 
non-compliant proxy would filter out the X- headers.

Oh, and if the server forgets to send

    Vary: X-Name, X-Class, X-Type

Then things would get pretty interesting...
