No, I'm not sure.  It does seem like some kind of acknowledgement that
the server knows something about that URI, to know what is supposed to
be done with it, and hence that "The response to the request can be
found under a different URI and SHOULD be retrieved using a GET method
on that resource.  But it certainly isn't unambiguous.
