It is possible unless set of headers is infinite (i.e. set of
header names, not values). E.g.

proxy_set_header X-Something-1 $some_value_1;
proxy_set_header X-Something-2 $some_value_2;
proxy_set_header X-Something-3 $some_value_3;

Headers which values evaluate to empty string aren't sent.

Note well: proxy module itself uses this to provide ability to
pass X-Forwarded-For header with client's address added (see
$proxy_add_x_forwarded_for variable).

There is no one.
