> I may be missing the point here but how do you provide a closest match given that all you know of is the requested URI? For CMS driven sites this may just be a page ID.

For id's you can't, but that may or may not be the cause or the 404.
Incorrectly entering a URL manually and truncation are also possible
causes. The reason you give above is why close matches and not the
closest matches should be used as some of the top 3 closest matches
may be way off.
