I thought about that... I suppose I could even have the same nginx
instance proxy to itself, as the source IP would change to localhost
on the subrequest, but it seems wasteful and potentially brittle.

They cannot configure their proxy to send HTTP 1.0 requests, even
though it clearly does not support HTTP 1.1 correctly. And of course
they say "they have no problems with other sites", which I think
likely not true.

I could, I suppose, even give them a different hostname to work with,
but that would likely require many application-layer changes as well.
