What do you mean "topic areas"?  Redirects can be listed in category listings on purpose if and when needed.  They don;t disappear.  This page has all the same  problems of being a dead end that you accused redirects for.  It holds space with no purpose and only serves as a pointer as far as I can tell.  There are other more efficient and less tedious ways to accomplish your purpose that are called redirects. --Alex Rollin 19:01, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
