Depending on what happens in your server, it may be necessary-- horrid possibility!-- to preface every single one of your 80 redirects with a RewriteCond looking at THE_REQUEST. But let's not borrow trouble!
I think it should be okay. I already have a small list of these in place that have been working. Yeah that would be a PIA.
Rule #7 will probably run faster if you express the pattern as
I had to go over this a million times. You reminded me about the directory pages. So I thought yeah, what about the directory pages, but wait, that rule doesn't allow the directory pages. Then it finally dawned on me that I need to actually allow the directory page requests through. So I'm good now. I'll change #7.
Here too it may be necessary to include a condition looking at THE_REQUEST. More necessary, possibly, since it's an internal rewrite. If so, it should come before the existing condition.
Is that to save resources? To keep #7 from doing a file check on every single request that hits it?
