Both not needed because of:

 > RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
 > RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l

which means, only process the following redirect, if no 
file/directory/symlink of the requested name exists.

Typo3 can do that to, the simulateStatic-mechanism can use PATH_INFO.
(used it on a windows-testserver. I couldn't get redirects to work under 
However you loose the abbility to have virtual directories.
(Instead of www.myserver.tld/products/product-xyz/specs.htm you get
www.myserver.tld/prodxyz-spec.0.html or even www.myserver.tld/1234.0.htm)
So realURL looks "nicer".
