303 redirect to a preexisting document

I'm doing a bit of research and could use some help... does anyone
know of an instance of a 303 redirect being used in a semantic web
context where the target document does NOT contain the URI being
defined (even as a base URI)?

For example, a URI 'http://example/chicago' for which a GET request
yields a 303 response with Location:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago (which is a page that existed
before the URI 'http://example/chicago' was 'minted' and therefore
does not contain that URI).

This is an empirical question, not a theoretical one - I'm looking for
real examples.

Thanks
Jonathan
