I think most, though not all, redirects should be committer-
configurable/accessible. That is, when doc URI space changes, the person 
introducing the change needs the ability to indicate a redirect is 
required. This has happened a lot over the past year.

Isn't a single redirect config xml file  (with old URI and new URI) that 
is parsed to create a single .htaccess file more efficient/maintainable 
than individual pages with <meta> refreshes?
