I think it is more just a question of nobody getting around to it.
Obviously that needs to change.

I actually don't see that many voodoo references in the current docs.
Can you be a little more specific about what you are referring to?

I do think it needs to be made clear up front that mod_rewrite is
complicated and can easily mess up your server. That doesn't mean you
shouldn't use it; it means you should understand it well and test it

By the way, I assume you are talking about the reference docs. The
"practical solutions" docs should be transferred to the wiki along
with Rich's stuff, in my opinion.
