Um, this solution also means that nobody can ever get to any other page, as they will always be redirected back to the index

You can add to each page of the site a

 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0, http://.....index.html">

which will redirect the visitor to the index.html page.

But I don't find it's a good solution (some browsers, as Lynx, display
a confirmation message).

I hope that with XHTML and XLink (working draft), the following element
will be recognized :

 <link rev="start" href="index.html" xml:link="simple" actuate="auto" />

It would play exactly the same role but it will be more "official".

[The 'actuate' attribute accepts two values : 'auto', which means the link
will be followed automatically, and 'user', which means it will be
followed when the user clicks it]
