The author of mod_rewrite, rse@engelschall.com (Ralf S. Engelschall),
has said:

>It is intended this way, because when vhosts would inherit the enable flag
>this would cause a lot of performance lacks for vhosts, possibly without any
>advantages. For instance if the main server has a global rules which are only
>valid for himself, the rewriting engine would try to match them for all
>vhosts, too. Not very useful.
>But it is correct, we should make the docs a little bit clearer.  Ok,
>"RewriteOption inherit" documents a bit, but it was never stated that the
>rewriting engine has to be switched on for every context.
