thanks for all responses!

whatever that particular proxy deems appropriate (or the proxy's user 
has configured as their preferred response type or has specifically 
requested as their response through accept headers in the request), and 
that should be independent of the URI scheme or the HTTP protocol. it 
could be an HTML map page such as google maps, a portal page (such as 
http://stable.toolserver.org/geohack/geohack.php?params=37_52_18_N_122_16_22_W_type:city%28102743%29_region:US-CA), 
or some RDF for semweb applications. these could be served directly, or 
they could be served through redirects.

thanks and cheers,

dret.
