Had you been reading on you would have noticed that processing of 
per-dir config poses some questions already (putting it as per-dir in 
DOCROOT is always an option).

Case 2 as described suggests that the processing order is 
mod_negotation, mod_rewrite.
Case 2 suggests that mod_dir is after mod_rewrite (because the rule is 
not triggered), but the fact that the URL is resolved implies that 
mod_negotiation is done after mod_dir. Bit it can't be a cycle.

If things behave differently in server/per-dir so be it, they still 
should be well defined, even though different. Obviously, server config 
is no good place for experiments.


P.S.: That makes 2 out of 2 responders not reading my question 
(intentionally or unintentionally). I hope this is not a hallmark of 
this list.
