>From the mod_rewrite documentation:
===<8====
Checks if TestString is a valid URL and accessible via all the server's
currently-configured access controls for that path.
===8<====

Well, if you protect an URL using auth or host based mechanisms, -U will fail.
Simple test:

Redirect 403 /foo

RewriteCond /foo -U
...

In other words, it does NOT test, whether the URL is catched and successfully
delivered by a handler (if it wanted to, it actually had to run the handler,
which is not desirable and would be nearly impossible to handle). It just tests,
whether the handler can be executed or not.

However, a mod_rewrite-documentation overhaul is planned and a better
explanation of these issues will probably happen then.
