Now why could the documentation not have said that?

You have no idea what that means to me! I am about to go and re-write several of the Virtual
Hosts on my web-server to use that content redirection.

My thanks,

  Yes, that was a typo on my part.

  The R indicates an external redirect, meaning the client is asked to
  refetch the resource at the new location (and you'll notice a change
  in the client's URL-bar).  If you omit the R (which I would recommend
  in this case), the server will fetch the content at the new location
  and return it to the client as if it was at the old location.
