IMHO, if rxvt has capabilities not in xterm, it should not set TERM to xterm in the first place. If you set TERM to xterm you should not expect programs to jump through hops trying to figure out if it really is an xterm or rather something else. I would just say that anybody expecting to get rxvt.el loaded when TERM is set to xterm has a misconfigured system and leave it at that. But that is just IMHO.

And BTW, the argument that there is no rxvt termcap/terminfo description could be solved by rxvt itself. Rxvt could easily write such a description to a file and set the TERMCAP and TERMINO environment variables accordingly. Or the user can do it if rxvt won't.
