1. why not use mod-rewrite to make all pages have a .html extension?
Because then you are encoding things into the URL. What happens when you move from HTML to XHTML? They are very different, and have different mimetypes. Either you change all your links or live with misleading URLs. The type of the resource on the end of a URL should be in one place, and one place only - the Content-type mime header.
