The reason for this strange default is a technical one. .htaccess files are
bound to the directory they are located in and not to a particular URI.
Furthermore, mod_rewrite has no chance to determine which URI was actually used
*as the base URI* for this directory. That's the reason, RewriteBase was
introduced at all (and makes only sense in .htaccess files / <Directory> sections).

If I would write a new mod_rewrite, I'd abstain from this default and would just
make RewriteBase mandatory ;).
