Maybe I should be doing things differently, but here a couple of cases I use
redirects for:

- login: if the user accesses a restricted page before logging in, they get
redirected to a login page. And of course back to the referrer when they
have successfully logged in.

- private pages: if the users tries to access a 'private' (logged in, but no
permissions to the page) page, they get redirected out of the hierarchy to
prevent fishing around for content.

- form handling: we try to use a MVC paradigm in our cocoon webapps. This
implicitly uses redirects: the form posts to the controller which handles
the post and redirects to the results or errors.

- validation: I use XSP in the controller to validate passwords and form
fields. Depending on their success, I redirect to different places.

If these are covered using the sitemap redirector, great. If not, not so
