...what's the purpose of having a "browse-only" link to a page
that contains a redirect?  If the person follows the link they'll
just be immediately redirected back to the page they're currently 
on, yes?

And it could make it difficult to edit the page, if the person 
hasn't already entered a password somewhere that allows them to edit
the page.  The whole point of the link is to be able to have an
easy way of dealing with things if an author decides "Oh, I
shouldn't have been redirected here--I need to go fix that
