Right.  I think we left the consensus at something like this:

The CLF is too restrictive, as the object requested may be significantly
different than the one received, so we need a way to specify both in the
logfile.  This is true for many actions, multiviews for example - just
looking at logfiles won't tell me how many mother.html's versus 
mother.html3's were serviced.  However, it was deemed well and good to 
still log server internal redirects while waiting for CLF2, so *for*now* 
(and it's well documented, supposedly) that redirect is logged as a 
separate, but concurrent, access.  Maybe our next order of business 
should be working on CLF2 (and CGI 1.2, and... :)
