True. But my proposal to use redirection to handle multiple formats had nothing 
to do with the format, but only with the _quantity_ of formats for which URL 
syntax would be used. I thought that quantity would be two, but the consensus 
appears to be one. My proposal for redirection is only useful if the quantity 
is greater than one.

My proposal _also_ happened to include a way to specify the Info file that 
contains a page, to handle the usual case of multiple Info pages per file 
(unlike for HTML, which normally has each page in a separate file), because I 
assumed that Info would be one of the formats used, but that's a separate issue 
from using redirection to handle multiple formats.
