replicator issues a “GET /” request when it starts, to look up the remote server's UUID
and version. If it got an unexpected response, like a bunch of HTML, it might just fail with
an error.

Not, it wouldn't. The replicator doesn't request source or target UUID
via API, but takes the value from server which runs the replication.
At least that's how CouchDB's replicator works. As for others, no such
warranty could be given.
