Yep.

The wc1 response body (HTML) may contain something like

   <a href="http://www.newlocation.org/">new location</a>

You could make a test compairing the URI in the Location HTTP header and 
the URI in the HTML.

Or quite often, Location HTTP header values only contain relative URIs 
(Location: foo.html), which is not compliant with the HTTP 1.1 
specification.
