MapProxy has only limited support for (time) dimensions. froward_req_params is just a quick "hack" to get dimensions working when your clients are not needing the capabilities.

MapProxy does not read any capabilities documents on its own. (parse_capabilities_url is only used in `mapproxy-util wms-capabilities`).
