This probably goes without saying but I'll throw it in anyway: Other
status codes should be possible, don't you think?
For example; from the W3C:
"The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows,
through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource
is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address."
See also status code 301 (Moved Permanently)
