comment Load balanced solution on EC2 with IIS app servers behind single IP address
So the choice is between using naked domains with an IP address and having a single point of failure, or using regular www server names (to which the naked domain can redirect) and have fault tolerant hosting. I know which I would choose ;-).

comment Load balanced solution on EC2 with IIS app servers behind single IP address
This does not depend on using Route 53. Creating a CNAME record works with any DNS server / service and has the advantage that your client does not have to change anything in case of technical problems. Amazon will all handle this by internally changing the IP address for your alias (e.g. loadbal-123456789.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com). In fact, Amazon will probably even using round robing DNS to make it's ELB service even more fault tolerant. Really, you probably can't implement it better than Amazon has done.

comment Load balanced solution on EC2 with IIS app servers behind single IP address
When using cloud services like Amazon EC2 or Windows Azure you should not point your domain record to a single IP address with an A record but you should always use the provided aliases and point to them with a CNAME record. E.g.: www.yourdomain.com CNAME loadbal-123456789.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com. This allows Amazon to dynamically change your IP address and route traffic in case of server failures or network problems. This is all part of the fault tolerance of cloud hosting. You won't need and in fact don't want HAproxy in front of ELB.

Why do you want to use HAproxy in front of ELB? Sounds like ELB can do all you want to do with HAproxy. ELB will balance the load and handle the SSL traffic. IIS on the EC2 instances will just receive normal HTTP traffic.

I've modified my answer. But I feel there is no need for the rewrite rule at all, simply change the search form.
