I'm not clear what error or ambiguity in the HTML specification you are 
trying to point out here.

 From an HTML point of view, this is no different from the previous 
example.  IETF deals with HTTP standardisation.  However, it might be 
worth pointing out getting a 301 redirect should be interpreted as 
meaning you need to correct the URL, so one shouldn't deliberately 
design to create such redirects.  Also, one might want to consider 
content negotiation.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
