I never said that payload would be dynamically generated. Think of a static HTML file with link elements. Or a static JSON document.
If the user uploads these on a static file hosting service, the server will absolutely know how to return them!

Yes, or a default document (like 'index.html')

No, but if you upload a static doc (JSON or HTML) at the canonical URL, then the server will return it accordingly.
