Most of what people now do in .htaccess files is a kludge for shared hosting apache configs. Nasty klutzy ways to do things for people on a shared web server with the actual apache configs controlled by others. 

For anything beyond a normal website/application, you should be running your own server/configs/etc.. for general purpose website and small scale applications: it's a religious difference that doesn't really matter. 

And I've seen the hairiest nastiest stuff ever done in .htacess files with redirect logic..
