But I thought the whole point of the <redirect/> is to tell JSF that the
view-id is external...

I doubt that you can when using the navigation file. Note that the 
target is <to-view-id>, ie a VIEW name, not a URL. As you've told 
myfaces that all your VIEWs have the suffix ".xhtml" the current 
behaviour seems logical to me.

You could do this in your action method:

public String goToSomeServlet() {
   ExternalContext ec =

   return null;

This bypasses normal JSF navigation, which seems reasonable as you are 
NOT doing normal JSF navigation here.
