  By setting a "mark proxy dead after X seconds" configuration option.
But the proxies retransmission timers for packets are not the same as
the above configuration.

  That configuration item will have to be added, of course, and some
code changed.  But having the proxy originate packets at various
intervals is not a good idea.
