At the risk of stating the obvious :
There are two different types of redirect :
- an "internal redirect" consists of just modifying the request URL, and 
recycling the request internally from the beginning.
(in that case of course there is not scheme://host, because it is the 
same one)

- an "external redirect" means that the server sends a 301/302 HTTP 
response to the browser, telling it (in another HTTP header) "and here 
is the URL that you should try instead".
(in that case it is a complete URL, http://hostname included)

Just to make sure that you read the documentation of URLrewriteFilter 
properly, and did not miss something. Maybe they are named differently 
in the documentation ?
It would surprise me if URLRewriteFilter did not have a way to send a 
shortcut response to the browser with a redirect header.
