Isn't what you're asking for capable of being done with a <map:read
src="cocoon:/.."/> instead of a <map:redirect-to/>? Or is your actually
usage case more complicated than your examples. I could almost understand
redirect-to trying to simulate what would happen if a Location header _had_
been sent, except doing it more efficiently, and expecting developers to
just read the data from the other file if that's what they wanted.
