Let's say I have a vhost with a DocumentRoot and ProxyPass to an application server. I want the proxy to only forward requests with an extension of .xyz and .abc, but everything else should default to the doc root. How can I achieve that?

Use LocationMatch:

<LocationMatch \.xyz$>
  ProxyPass http://some.where/else

NOTE that since you are already providing an exact location, ProxyPass no longer requires one.
