The RewriteCond effect will be negligible in comparison to the
resource usage involved in proxying.  It is simply one regex, compared
to generating a whole new request to a different server.  If you are
concerned about resource usage, the first thing to look at is if the
proxy is really necessary, and if it could be cached at the proxy

It depends on what exactly you mean by "different handling".  There is
no general answer to that question.
