No. Alias translations and RewriteRules in servercontext are handled in the
translate_name hook. Fixup rewrites (->internal redirects) or
mod_alias-redirects in directory context are only triggered by per-directory
configuration, which would be skipped in that case.

The only issue in mod_rewrite could be the Type/Handler forcing which occurs
also in fixup, where is the right place for such things (to force something).
