I believe the BP is considered to be just getting Apache itself to do the work, which is covered by their docs. The SP workaround is really more limiting, and is more of an IIS thing I imagine.

The SP has to see the right address everywhere, not just there. Thus, avoid that, get Apache to populate REMOTE_ADDR correctly.
