The "default" HTTP way to solve the problem posed in section 2.1  
would be server-driven conneg; i.e., sending the correct  
representation in response to the request for http://example.com/ 
ubiquity/resource, along with the appropriate Vary header and a  
Content-Location header that can be used to determine where that  
specific representation can be found again.

If you're suggesting that redirection is better, it would be good to  
say why.
