server unavailable in proxy backends

Whenever a proxy backend is configured with a list of URIs and the first
server becomes unavailable for a while, all connections will need to try
it before getting to another working one.

What about introducing an (optional) algorithm that decides, after an
appropriate retry pattern, to rework the list of URIs?

I understand that since the proxy backends make concurrent access to the
list of URIs this may require further mutex protection; also, the
algorithm may not be general enough, or too complicated for most of the
applications, so the best approach would be to add some API (much like
rebind) to allow applications to deal with this issue, leaving the
current behavior as the default.
