--- Comment #18 from Philippe Verdy <verd...@wanadoo.fr> ---
Why couldn't this be a DNS redirect (CNAME) of an HTTP permanent redirect that
requires performing two separate sessions to separate servers ?

No more trafic reaching WMF servers (except to its third-party DNS hosting
service), all the trafic goes directly to WMUK.

Caveat: the WMUK webserver would have to accept HTTP queries whose "Host:"
header still uses the former domain name, and to solve it correctly, would host
the HTTP redirect itself (so that clients get informed of the change of domain
name and can fix their URLs) to specify the correct "Host:" value to use.

The HTTP redirect performed on WMUK servers themselves will be necessary if
WMUK wants to be accessible via HTTPS, in order to validate their own security
certificate (which cannot be issued by them for a subdomain of wmimedia.org
owned and controled by the WMF).
