by which you seem to argue that it is impossible
that redirects can
be handled by a bot at all. But en.wikipedia has had templates like
for years, which do exactly this kind of thing: flag redirects for
categorization, etc., in ways which it is entirely feasible that a
bot could pick up on. A redirect with one flag could be treated in
one way, while another flag may be treated in another way; and there
does not have to be any action taken in treating untagged redirects.
