Correction, lm rewriting does not duplicate the ext: protocol, not the 
site: protocol. It is completely different in both cases...

ext: replaces the link with a full URL

site: replaces a link with one resolved from site.xml

lm: replaces a link with a potentially unrelated one i.e. 
documentation.html -> unterlagen.html (I hope Google translate isn't 
making a fool of me)

This is a really interesting use case, it means that we can actually 
i18n the URL space - cool!!!
