So in that case those apps must also be generating URL at context root
/app1 and relative to it.
If 2 of your applications start generating URIs which begin with / and
not /app1 or /app2
then I think even you will need a different ServerName or DNS entry so
that send that request which forwards the root of site in ProxyPass to
internal machine.
I am very sure this situation depends upon how the application is
generating URLs.
