The redirector would have the same problem as a view on IPloneSiteRoot, 
because it translates from a specific/absolute path to another 
specific/absolute path (relative to Zope root, not relative to the URL 
or VHM environment, in other words).

Note, plone.app.redirector does not have a UI like RedirectionTool does 
for adding specific redirects, but adding the necessary forms would be 
fairly trivial (it'd just need to talk to the IRedirectionStorage local 
utility, which already has the necessary methods to query existing 
redirects and remove or update them).
