One comment on this excerpt:

I don't think so.  For one thing, the redirect URI (or URI chain) could
be displayed only if there were a redirect, so in cases of no redirect,
no additional real estate would be used.  And for another thing, the
length of the chain displayed could be limited -- perhaps to the first
and last URI.  But at least displaying a partial chain would seem better
than displaying none of it.
