Wouldn't that rule catch just about damn near everything?

One of the clean ups I *do* find very useful is the combination of 
"page" htaccess definitions. Much the same lines of what you are 
thinking, but more specific.

Example, instead of 5 lines for each page, have:

RewriteRule ^(page1|page2|page3)/trackback/?$ 
/index.php?pagename=$1&tb=1 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(page1|page2|page3)/feed/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ 
/index.php?pagename=$1&feed=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(page1|page2|page3)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$ 
/index.php?pagename=$1&feed=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(page1|page2|page3)/page/?([0-9]{1,})/?$ 
/index.php?pagename=$1&paged=$2 [QSA,L]
RewriteRule ^(page1|page2|page3)/?([0-9]+)?/?$ 
/index.php?pagename=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]

Add "|pagename" as nessecary. This way you aren't catching things like 
"/robots.txt" with that last rule.
