For redirecting rules, add the protocol and hostname to the rule target.
... especially if part of your goal is to eliminate Duplicate Content. Otherwise, people who arrive asking for www.example.com will end up getting www.example.com; people who ask for example.com will get example.com; sneaky people who ask for example.com:80 will walk away with example.com:80 and so on.
For "people" read "search engines" and there's your duplication.
