..Simon, there's no use case where <meta> cannot be substituted by a
JS-only solution. The point is, what happens to the JS-only solution in
cases where JS is not usable for any reason? Usually fallback content can
be hidden or removed somehow, but <meta> makes it impossible. Does this
mean that meta refresh should be avoided altogether and replaced by JS?
