So right now, Denis has it set so that if you type in the commonly used
docs.* namespaces, but use www.*, you will be directed to the best
alternative.

But if we do, across the board, for all 404'd pages on the www.* space,
all pages you might type erroneously will be redirected to docs.*. This
won't result in a 404 on docs.*. It'll result in that noarticletext,
"pre-create" page. No?

Maybe it's better to restrict it as Denis has.
