Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52181] mod_rewrite Technical Details Ruleset Processing diagram unclear about transition between rules

Thank you again Daniel.

The addition of "RewriteRules?" does solve point 1.

As for "Redirect or proxy the contents", I think this does improve the accuracy
of the overall process, but I do not think this really solves my issue 2.
Here's a test again. 

Let's say we have a request for "" and the only
rule in the ruleset doesn't match. We still start at "The request", go to
"Apache receives URI", to "RewriteRules?", to RewriteRule, to "Check pattern",
to "More rules?" and then to "File or URI?". What happens then? First of all,
notice that the label "File or URI?" would suggest a boolean choice, which is
no longer the case. Anyway, we certainly don't have a file, so we either follow
External URL or Internal URI. I am not sure what the exact difference between
these is, but I suppose we should follow "Internal URI" in this case. If so, we
land on "Apache receives URI", and again, we appear to be in an infinite loop.
