What I think it's doing is fooling the code into accidentally behaving
somewhat like a rewrite engine and producing URLs that are superficially
doing the right things. I suspect that if you never had to change the
content scenario here, and never use the RequestMap for anything more than
this, it might work, but I can't guarantee that some future change doesn't
break it. If I add something that needs to use those configuration
elements, I'm counting on them carrying the hostname alone.
