Ahhh, so your question is: how do I activate rewrite flags from a prg:
RewriteMap. (Not at all clear from your first email.)

Indeed, this can't be done directly, but it can be easily done
indirectly. For example, have your map program prefix the URL with
proxy: or redirect: depending on what you want, and then:
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ ${rd:%{THE_REQUEST}}
RewriteRule ^proxy:(.*)$ $1 [P]
RewriteRule ^redirect:(.*)$ $1 [R]

(Use the RewriteLog to debug!)
