Yes, there are transformations of this sort, but they are not called
query rewrite in the code's terminology, but "optimization" -- rewrite
(rules and views) happens to the parsed statement, and the optimizer
works on the output of rewriting. So actually the optimizations happen
whether there were or not rules or views.
The query's path is
SQL -> parse -> rewrite -> optimize -> execute
