My solution taken:
- using mod_deflate only for apache listening at 443 only (it is a cpanel
- deactivate mod_deflate at apache at 8081 (now, there is no vary at all)
- nginx using apache 8081 as proxy_cache server.
- now nginx is the one sending cache elements using gzip if required.

For me, this is really better that apache proccessing twice, and nginx
storing twice (or more) due to vary.

Thanks, again.
