A reminder. I'm using apache -> haproxy -> thin/rails

I think the main concern is loss of tracking info like client ip, etc by switching to http mode, also because we have custom error pages handled by apache, i dont want to hand that off to haproxy.

I understand what you are saying, I will begin testing in http mode to make sure all is good and most likely push that out with the new version of haproxy.
