I've even seen sites use (redirect to) /keyword (extensionless) for their home page
Me too and it fecks me off. Why? Totally unneccesary.
I disagree, I'm currently doing that as well and for a reason.
I'm currently focusing a site on a sub-niche for penetration reasons. However, if it takes off then it has the potential to cover over sub-niches within the overall niche. If this happens then I don't want to my current sub-niche homepage to have to change urls from / to /keyword .
So what I have done, I have done in anticipation of future changes.
