I would not do this. I simply HATE sites that automatically redirect me to another page!
Every now and again, I'll visit sites on my treo and a couple of sites (like palm's own site -- last time I was there anyway), kicks you into a "mobile" version since the website owner "thinks" it is better for you.
I like full sites on my treo, even if they look like crap since I can still navigate and find the info I need. I put the treo on "single browser (or is it column?)" and it looks ok, I can find the info I need. On most sites with only mobile, the info is not as full as the full version of the site. And sometimes the mobile version is days -- sometimes months -- behind the regular version.
That is my argument against redirect... of course, there are many more positive reasons for using a redirect.
