I was in fact assuming a start from scratch, but if you can simply
re-target something already existing, sure, why not. However, I duly
note that I do expect times.d.n to be merged into blog.d.{n,o} as
merging all existing blog-ish resources was one of the point.

Here, my assumption was that we didn't want to lose readers of either
news.d.n and times.d.n (the latter maybe a bit less so, since AFAICT it
has been down for a while) in the switch. That's why I was thinking as
redirects. If we don't consider the goal worthwhile, we might ignore it,
although we should communicate clearly that future blog-ish stuff in
Debian will be published through blog.d.n.
