I can give one reason for giving the relocation message -- you may be 
trying to migrate a server from one location to another.  In that 
instance, you'll want to leave up notices of the change for a while (long 
enough for people to fix their pointers), but you don't want to leave up 
the old server permanently.  After all, what's the point of moving the 
server if you've still got the old server giving out redirections?  :)
